In brief: Rest, drink, nourish

Your body needs to be refueled efficiently.
Healthy habits such as eating a well-balanced meals, drinking plenty of water and fluids along with getting adequate rest/sleep will maintain a normal healthy recovery rate. Bad eating habits, dehydration and inadequate rest/sleep will definitely delay a normal recovery from a difficult workout.
