Does anyone really do the stretching afterwards (like thoroughly)? I know it's highly recommended but but...

After I'm done with the running I can't wait to lye on the sofa and watch some crappy movie on tv.
I actually just Googled this and it is recommended that if you stretch at all, do it after the workout and even then only a light stretch of any muscle which feels tight. A proper warm-up/warm-down is more beneficial.
