No, no mistake. 'Felt' is the past tense verb here; it is a linking verb. 'Relaxed' is an adjective, like 'I felt tired/excited/interested' etc.

There is no such phrase 'it doesn't give double past tense'. You must be German and you translated word by word 'Es gibt keine double past tense'. Clever guy ;-)
