I started averaging sub 3 5x5 because I tightened it for less pops and lubed it. I also grinded and got a pb single of 2:36

Noooo I got a terrible 3x3 average in the weekly comp. I had two 25s which was terrible and then a 15, a 17 plus 2 and a 18 I think. It was a 20 average. 🥲

Super hard off-season practice today: 8 laps in 40 degree weather with 50 m breaks. “ comfortably fast.”

Dude, you can't be going out doing stuff like this. It isn't the main season anymore, so you don't need to work at high intensities in super-cold temperatures. The end of the season is when you are at your peak, so you need time to rest. Otherwise, you'll fatigue. I don't know when your season ended, but if you have any injuries you developed, take the time to let them heal with your break.
However, after your break, it doesn't mean go and doing the same workouts you did in cross country. I would suggest that you just go on long runs at a pace that is comfortable for you. That should be your "hard" workout, not actually running sprints and getting your blood pressure high. You should be focusing on building up endurance during the off-season so that when you enter a month before the track season, you are conditioned and ready to go start building up to the pace you want to run in the spring.
I'm not going to go too in-depth in this singular message, but if you want to learn more about running the off-season, DM me and I can help you out with workouts you can do that will be healthier than going out on the track. Not that going onto the track is wrong, but it isn't what you need RN.
