This is very common. During sleep your muscles are paralysed by your brainstem to prevent you from acting out your dreams. Sometimes that feeling of being paralyzed can translate into the dream making it so that you perceive yourself like you are very slow or heavy.

absolutly this happens to me. I can't run fast at all!! for some reason in my dream I decide that if I run backwards I will be able to go faster. I spend a lot of time running backwards in my dreams. but it's still in slow motion!

I always run fast in dreams. I have dreams were I run incredibly long distances really fast and don't get tired atall. I rarely have dreams of chases that arren't underwater tho. Once I had to run from a t-rex I was running pretty fast in that dream too tho.

OMG! this happens to me aswell and I can still remember my dream where I was running away from someone, I tried to run faster but it seemed as though there was some kind of invisible force which made me run slow which did freak me out.
By the way, if you dream about running away from something/someone, that usually means you're looking for a fresh start (just thought I'd let you know).

This happens to me in a lot of ways. In my dreams, i will be running from something and my heart will be beating like im sprinting but my steps are slower than that of a walk. Other times i will be trying to scream for help and nothing comes out. I also have dreams where i am in fights and the punches i throw are so weak. it feels like i am hitting someone with foam swim noodles lol.

When I have crazy shit happen in my dreams I always have the feeling that I have no power and super weak. Like it's hard for me to run away from something or even fight back it super freaky.

I have the punching problem. If I hit someone in a dream really hard it ends up being just a pat.
