Why do I smell bleach after a hard run?

I can't believe I'm asking this, but here we go: I run three times a week, anywhere between 30 mns to 1 hour 30 mns (ie I sweat). And an awful lot of times, a few minutes after having stopped, I suddenly smell bleach around me. Why?
I thought this could be remains of bleach from my washing machine system (which, with my sweat, would maybe make the bleach odour stand out), but I seldom use bleach to clean clothes, and my partner says he can't smell anything.
What gives, hive-mind?
