How do you know if you have recovered after a marathon .

People recover at different rates and the advice is not to push too hard or long until you have recovered. But how do you know that you have recovered?
I think the one day per mile seems a bit daft as some people seem to be able to run marathons every fortnight and others twice a year.
Given that the legs feel fine is it down to monitoring heart rates during runs and resting heart rates?
