Mate, this time of year you should be doing long slow steady rides and pick up the HI work in February.
I'm pretty sure all that's happening is you're training too hard and not recovering enough. Its pretty common knowledge that you need a good solid base to build your top end on and also short HI workouts are not what you need for a sportive. Training harder != training better.
I know the temptation is to go all guns blazing all the time and to be fair that will get you so far but to really move your cycling to the next level you have to train right.
