A couple of weeks off.
Or a 'Lydiard aerobic reset' - long very slow run (like 100+mins at 5.30min/km) - which worked for me earlier in the year.
Some good night's sleep (I. E. time off alcohol) never hurt.

Cheer Nic, I might give one of then a go. Feel like I'm just going through the motions with little purpose to be fair, don't have a huge amount to aim for even though I've set goals

long(ish) slow running for a week might be better. I found a bit of info online (albeit only a forum discussion) about rebuilding stale runners. It sort of worked when I got myself into a hole and OJ (the actual OJ ;) suggested it (may have worked even better had I done it properly!)

being a forum thread there's quite a bit of deviation. Maybe don't go for 3 22-mile runs back to back as well, keep it sensible ;)
