Need some advice on LOC's

Hey guys, so after two failed application cycles back-to-back, I decided to take a year off and examine myself objectively as an applicant.

uGPA: 3.8
MCAT 1 (no excuse, I just bombed): 499
MCAT 2: 509

I have good volunteer hours and a great deal of clinical hours, as I have been working as a medical assistant since my graduation in 06/18.

I believe that my MCAT score is below average for most Texas schools, and I would like to be able to improve on that. I plan on beginning to study again for the MCAT shortly, during my break from this application cycle.

My fear is now in regards to my LOC's. I don't really know what to do.. My biochem professor and my research PI have written two of my letters for my previous two applications, and frankly, I'm both embarrassed and questioning about asking again. My last class with the two of them was in 2017. Do you guys think that it's been too long to ask them again? And if so, what do I do?

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
