You will have to provide more information. You said it ran well yesterday. Did you mow through similar grass when it ran well?

A couple things come to mind. The grass could be really thick and simply bogging the mower down but without knowing anything more I'm betting you have a clogged jet in the carburetor. If you simply started the mower and ran it without a load it can get up to full rpm and sound good but it can't flow enough fuel to make the power needed to cut grass.
