Happy Christmas! ๐ŸŽ„

We've just done our Xmas morning run on the beach and it was SO worth it!!!

There was a surprising amount of Christmas morning runners out today. I think I greeted at least 10 runners with the official Greet. Smile wave wink then kick in the air.

On the last 5 mins I pushed myself a little. Picked up the pace and suddenly realised I was suffering from FLOPPY HANDS SYNDROME.

Does this happen to anyone else?

I've never really thought of it before but usually I run with my fists clenched.

During the last 5 mins of my run today my hands were flopping about like bits of ham.

What's that about?!

Merry Happy Xmas everybody!

I'm off to drink ALL of the Gin ๐Ÿ˜‰

Chalkwell Beach? lovely place to run, wife and I go about 6 in evening last few weeks after picking her up from work.

Great photo. Lovely thing to do on Xmas morn. Sorrr don't know about floppy hands except I relax mine when I'm too hot to try and cool them down a little...

Floppy is better than stiff (and I never thought I'd hear myself say that!)

Glad you and Doozer had a good run!

Well done! Were you actually running on sand? I can imagine how hard that must be.

Funnily enough I spent some time thinking about my wrists today whilst jogging. I consciously do the โ€˜imagine you are holding a crisp between thumb and forefingerโ€™ thing as advised by someone on here I think? It stops you clenching but it also keeps some tension there (so you donโ€™t drop the crisp!) and stops the flapping. I assume thatโ€™s the idea... hopefully someone more experienced will come along and share their wrist wisdom ๐Ÿ™‚

๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚ I didn't run on the actual sand.

I like the crisp thing though ill try that today... Floppy hands are such a distraction I couldn't stand it! ๐Ÿ˜‚
