Maintenance workout

Four days no exercise, eating freely has put a few lbs on and left me feeling pretty soft.  After a massive lunch of a lb of fried fish, fries, and apples, and sweet peach tea, I went to the track this evening.  Despite a decent maintenance workout, I still weighed 151.0 lbs afterward, most in several months.  It goes away fast.
Hoka trainers on 
400m warmup, stretches, drills 
4 x 200m - 29, 28.5, 28, 27.8
Nothing fast today.  Just had to remind myself how to sprint.   There is no way I'll be in shape to race a 400m next weekend but maybe I'll do the 100 and 200m.  Need to lose a few lbs.

151 lbs for me feels heavy, although I don't look particularly heavy.  My present 151 lbs is a BMI of 23.7 - in the normal range.  (For perspective... a 5'10" man, with an identical BMI of 23.7 would weigh 165 lbs).

I hope to post more about the Spain experience this weekend.
