If you want to schedule work from run(), then use the worker.  That is
what it is for.

If you want to do work from some other non-realtime thread like you are
here, then simply don't use the worker.  It does nothing for you in that
situation, so there is no point.  Just do the work immediately in the
calling thread.

That said, in your case, run() + worker is the best solution.
