When my body repsonds that way its usually because of overtraining.
Also keep in mind that during reg training, its hard to recreate that adrenalin rush that you get in actually attending an event/competition. No doubt that lil extra pushed you harder than normal.
Feed yourself good proteins & carbs. Take care of any health conditions. Drink plenty of water a day to rid your body of the toxins & free radicals that the run caused. Get plenty of quality sleep. Give yourself a little break from running/jogging.
Also the after care you give yourself on race day can be a factor in recovery as well.
Give the leg muscles some time to recover properly and regrow.
Try to vary your workouts.
