You need to cut back a bit to allow your body to catch up with your enthusiasm. New runners typically try to do too much too soon and end up getting burned out or injured. So far you seem to be in the first category but that may change if you continue to push.
Your long runs are too long for your weekly mileage. The fact that you need to struggle to complete them and that you are exhausted after them means that you don't have the necessary endurance to support them. Try limiting the length of your long runs to 30% of your total weekly mileage or better yet, eliminate them entirely and add another running day to your week. As your mileage and your endurance builds you can bring them back.
How's the summer weather down there? My running routes are under a foot of snow up here and I wimped out on this mornings run.
