Could be that you are tired and need a bit of a rest.
It takes time to get over a race that's why you need to plan in recovery. HM's aren't to be sniffed at, they take a lot out of you. Then 2x 10k? Just take it very easy for the next week or two. Don't do anything too heavy on the running front.
We all go through these down periods where it feels like your body has just forgotten how to run. It will improve.
If you feel that your running has become a bit jaded then do something different to your usual training but I'd still say have some down time.
