Mind you it will need to be real quiet when you do it.
From memory Heinz says put your ear to the fuel tank fill pipe but this is a bit more difficult
One of the problems that Legacy has on starting is that it will flood if it does not start in the first few cylinders. I understand that this is because the EMU provides a fuel rich mixture at start and continues to do so until the engine fires. Consequently if it does not start then it becomes flooded and can be damn hard to start. Sometimes putting the foot to the floor works but it is still difficult.
This seems to explain your symptoms that it starts easily the next day.
So why then is it sometimes hard to start. I suggest you have a look at your battery. It may still provide spark but if it is on the way out it may be down enough to provide poor starting. There was a posting some time ago to the effect that even a new battery with insufficient grunt will provide poor starting
