Sounds like you're going out too hard too early, without a good warm up.
It will sometimes take me a good 20 or 30mins of riding to get really warmed up and settled into a groove. So if I go too hard too early, I'll have like a mini-bonk where I fee like crap and slow down. Then once my heart rate comes back down, and all the muscles are fully warmed up and ready, I can pick the pace back up and keep it there for a while, and feel good too.
