I think you feel weak in your runs because you have not recovered from strength training/running routines. Recovery depends on your age, intensity of exercise, your sleep quality, if you get enough protein and also if you are at a caloric surplus or not. You can easily double your recovery time by exercising intensely, sleeping less and eating at a caloric deficiency.
Try recovering first and then testing your running performance.
Also, I agree with the notion that if you want to run competitively, you must train like a competitive runner, not like a power lifter.
