Tiredness after exercise

Every now and then, after exercising, I get overwhelmingly
tired. How can I prevent this?

I consider myself fairly fit: I run 10km+ 2-4 times a week; I attend strenuous outdoor circuit training sessions (usually twice a week); my job is a physically active one.
However, irregularly, after a run or circuit session, I get so tired that it impacts on whatever I'm doing, and I feel the need to sleep there and then.
This doesn't happen after every bout of exercising, but it's common enough.
My pre- and post-exercise regimen consists of making sure I'm having enough water to drink, and that's about it. Should I be doing anything else? Should I be eating specific foods at specific times?
