What are your tips for feeling good after a solid effort at recreational sports (in my case, training for a marathon) even if you couldn't give 100% in a workout? I understand and honor the importance of the rest day and I know, on an intellectual level, that laying it all out every day is unreasonable. The question refers to things I could tell myself or other techniques for general self-forgiveness with regards to workouts that just don't feel like I gave it *everything*.
Please nothing that sounds like "You already lapped everyone on the couch." Comparing my workouts to others doesn't interest me.
