Personally, I don't sleep well at all most nights and often feel like I have zero energy when training yet I still manage to lift close to my best on occasion. We're all different. (And sessions sometimes suck when I am extremely energetic).

Also, you knew when enough was enough and wisely backed off. Another important learning curve.
