That isn't actually what happens. Thor blocks the blast, brings the hammer back above his head and then strikes the next blast. The movement is fluid so he never starts spinning his hammer again. The next shot is of him falling/flying at the Destroyer.
Now I am in the group that believes he needs his hammer to fly in the films, but they don't always display it very well imo. Like the shot of him landing before he fights Loki.
