Neck/head pain from sprints

I've recently been getting back into sprinting after 9 years away. Lately I've been getting pain in back of my head/neck during and after full out 6 second sprints, particularly when overgeared. It seems like I am just straining too much.
I don't remember this being an issue when I did a thousand sprints in my younger years.

I find it hard to believe I can be trying "too hard". Is it a result of bad form?

I don't get it when lifting but I also haven't yet really pushed myself super hard with weights.

Maybe I need to take some time off?
What are some symptoms that a fast twitch athlete is over training. It was so much easier to spot over training as an endurance athlete.
