Default My civic bogs down and dont know why?

My 97 honda civic ex coups bogs down bad after I run it kind of hard. Its a five speed vtec and ill shift around 4500 and 5000 rpm. I don't do that often but when I wanna go kind of fast ill do that. But afterwards it will bog down. I know after 4500 rpm the vtec kicks in but why does it bog down after wards when I want to drive normally? Ill be in third gear and it will go really slow and wont pick up speed until it hits 3200 rpm and if im gong up a hill It wont make it up unless I put it in second gear. When it bogs down like that I can press the gas pedal all the way down and it wont gain speed. Someone please tell me what's wrong.

Could be the catalytic converter is plugged up. Have you been driving it with the check engine light on?
