mr. pot, please meet mr. kettle.

grammar :P

to the OP, if you're doing 6 on/1 off, you're probably not getting enough rest. 3on/1off is what the mainpage does, but a lot of people do 5/2. add an extra rest day in there and see if it improves.

also, eat more fat

I was 6 foot, and 205 - 210 when i played rugby and could smoke the runs for all PFT tests including the seals (did it on a beach too). You need to eat and a lot. How are you supposed to pull my 230 lb *** out of the water at 160 lb body weight?

2500 calories a day is barely enough for me, and I'm 5'4" and 130 lbs. Remember that your activity level has gone way up. Eat more.

160 lbs at 6' tall makes you a bean pole anyway. You aren't going to get a whole lot stronger unless you add muscle mass. Which means you need to eat more.

Being sluggish is a sign of overtraining and/or insufficient recovery. You need to rest more, and probably eat more.

Yes, there's a theme here. Did I mention that you need to eat more?

Katherine

for best performance you should eat "the zone"
serch the zone, read the book and start following the zone diet for best performances.

do not add or takeout calories. + rest, 3 on 1 off is better that 5 on 1 off until you become really elite.

Are you seriously afraid you'll slow down if you gain weight at 6'1/160#? You could add on another 65# of muscle to your frame and still not worry about being too heavy to run. If I were you I'd eat more and use that extra muscle to run faster.
