Absolutely fell apart during Fran today...need advice

Background: I had to take some time off to adjust to the start of a new semester, but I have been hitting it regular for about 2 weeks, and for several months prior to starting school. My PR is 4:03, but today I literally couldn't finish. It took me 4 minutes just to get TO the second set of pullups...obviously, something has changed. I could use some advice about what might have happened, and how I can fix it. The thrusters and pullups were extremely taxing-lightheaded, nauseous, gassed quickly. On the one hand, I suspect that I am de-conditioned. However, I was not mentally prepared for Fran...I basically just walked in and did it, and was very nervous and distracted before I started. Add to that the fact that my diet is sort of scattered right now, and it's a possible explanation. Any advice? Should I rest up, Zone for a few days and attack it again, or is there something else going on?
