I'm not certain what happened but some types of lettuce stay crisp better than others. I would expect crisphead lettuce and romaine lettuce (aka cos lettuce) to hold up better than leaf lettuces.

Harvest in the morning. Immediately rinse and rough cut the clean lettuce. Remove excess water. Place cuttings in a plastic bag with a moist paper towel and loosely tie shut. Pop in the refrigerator. I have lettuce for the week that keeps it's shape.

Good luck

What is your nitrate level ? To high a level will cause this.
