Do you guys ever have periods when your legs are dead ,lifeless, and for no apparent reason ?

Yep. That happened to me last year. I pushed through it and ended up with tendonitis. From now on I'll listen and take a break when my legs are not into it.
taking a recovery week with no speedwork and reduced mileage is my cure
Thanks, but I tried that and wasn't any help. My problem is that I go 3,4 weeks great and then for a week
my legs are lifeless.

i don't think i quite understand...... conventional wisdom says to take a recovery/stepback week every 3-4 -5 weeks to allow the body to recover . if you go 3 or 4 weeks and then get dead legs what gets you back to having another good 3 to 4 weeks? would seem your body is forcing you to do what is reccommended.
i think you may have just answered your own question but perhaps i misunderstand.
if your legs stay lifeless and don't come back, then i think you might have an issue, otherwise what you describe sounds normal to me.
can't expect to train hard week after week w/o the legs getting tired and needing a break to recover. if it happens to you every 3-4 weeks, i'd say that's not out of the norm. listen to your body to prevent overtraining.
