True Confessions: the post wall edition

After finishing a very rough 20 mile run on Sunday, I have come to a shocking conclusion.  Ready?

I need to use these tools WAY more than I have been.  I know this, but because I've been feeling pretty good and recovering from my long runs easily and quickly, I've been neglecting the stretching and rolling.  

As I was laying on the couch in misery Sunday night, texting away with Kirsten, she reminded me how much I need to stretch and roll.  Especially after these long, brutal runs.  Sunday really kicked my ass, mentally and physically.  I'm still extremely sore (not "injured" sore, but tight muscles - hip flexors and hamstrings especially) and I'm a bit scared to go do speedwork tonight.  I went for an 8 mile, easy bike ride yesterday and it really didn't help loosen anything up.  Can't wait to hear what my sports chiro says tomorrow.

And, since this is true confession day, I really need to lay off the pretzel M&Ms.

What about you, anything you want to get off your chest today?
