Fighting to get back

Warm humid and rainy at the Sewanee track this Saturday evening.  About the same as it was the last time I was here.  I put my spikes on for the first time in 2 months... just to see how bad a shape I'm in doing a standard workout.   Well, not so fit.   Was going to run 4x400m with 2 min rest but all I could manage was 3x400m with 2.5 min rest + a 400m after recovery.   If I had tried a 4th 400m, even with 2.5 min rest, it probably would have been 90ish.    My hamstring still is feeling tight.  I definitely tweeked it a bit last time out on Wed.  Not too bad, finished with a 65 sec 400m.
600m warmup, stretches, drills 
Saucony Showdown spikes on 
3 x 400m w/ 2.5 min rest - 68, 69, 78 
10 min rest 
400m - 65
Still overweight.   It's really hard to go from a 'normal' weight of 146-147 down to race weight of 140 - 141 lbs.   That last 5 lbs is a killer.  I'm about 145.5 after workout.
