I bet you decreased your carb intake due to the absence of grains and legumes.
If that is what you want by going paleo, you will have to let your body adapt to your new (smaller) carb load. Otherwise, you will bonk seriously. When your metabolism is adapted to a lower carb amount for the same amount of workout you were used to pre-paleo, you can say that you are past the transition. Not before though and the first 4 to 6 weeks, I woudl certainly take it easy if I were you. The alternative is that you switch to 100% primal / paleo AFTER your next competition.
Note that you have to increase your sodium consumption in the case you go much lower carb than before. Drinking a lot during this phase may be due to more water being flushed out, which also depletes you of sodium rather fast (typical low carb transition).
