Week 9 Run 2 done and dusted ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป ... Hands ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿปโœ‹๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿป๐Ÿ–๐Ÿป๐Ÿ˜‚

Running my 2nd to last run tonight on the treadmill it occurred to me as I caught my reflection in the window how fidgety I am with my hands ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

I decided to log my hand poses whilst running and name them. I wonder how many of you recognise any and if you have any of your own to add ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

Okay here goes...

1. Milking the ๐Ÿฎ cow .. slight curl of fingers in similar motion.

2. Peter Pointer .. as it says

3. The Boxer .. fists ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป clenched

4. The Tommy Cooper ... just like that pose

5. The Broken hand dryer ... shake it .. shake it.. shake it baby

6. The Mr Bean ... arms stretched down by thighs in attempt to combat pins and needles ๐Ÿ™„๐Ÿ™ˆ

7. Molten Man ... as in Terminator in a hands like arrows pointing forwards motion

8. The thumbs up ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป usually during my last minute of the home run ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

There!

Would be funny to know if any of you can at to this to make it to 10 ๐Ÿ˜X

This is so funny! I'm not used to all those icons as I don't even have a cellphone. So I can't offer any additional hand but am learning. Hope you'll find a particular hand for your graduation which has never been so close ;-)!

Lol. I've never actually thought about my hands while running but then I always have my phone in my right hand as I like to see how long I've got left. Haven't been on a run yet where I don't keep sneaking a peak at the countdown and in my left hand I always have tissue. So I guess my hands are more or less between 1 and 3. Haha.

Good luck with you last run. You've almost done it.

Well done on completing your run. That is a funny post. Not sure what I do with my hands. I always run outdoors. One more run and youโ€™re done ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿป

Thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ canโ€™t believe Iโ€™m nearly there. I really must start running outdoors now as I know it will become boring running the treadmill any further distances.

Slow and steady all the way to the podium :)

Oooh, you could channel this hand energy and learn sign language as you run? That'd keep it interesting!

Or - bit of 'Born to Hand Jive' or ... do the mashed potato (don't do the twist after though).

These days I'm doing the hold phone in one hand until frozen, switch hands and try and thaw the first hand out :-/ - yes I need a running belt I know!

Oh ya, my hands move a lot! I'm 1,2,5 and 8, but also:

*Rocky- hands in the air like Rocky at the top of the stairs when I'm super happy after a run; sometimes it's just a really good fist pump into the air (followed with a YA!)

*Rockstar-often you'll catch me playing air drums to my tunes when a really good song comes on.

*Policeman- hands flat in front of me, pumping up and down slowly reminding myself to SLOW DOWN - you're running too fast!

I run outside so hope nobody is watching, but if they are, they see a really happy runner enjoying herself immensely ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜œ..or someone they think is a little loopy...... Either way, it doesn't matter.....
