Tomorrow I'm updating my driver's license at the Boulder DMV, then heading back to my county to the Department of Revenue to get my Colorado license plates. I found out the DMVs in Colorado take appointments, and I snagged one, which is why I'm taking the whole day off tomorrow to get this all done. There aren't a lot of appointments each day, but if you get one, I'm told they take you in at that time and limits the waiting. If you do go without an appointment, good luck!

I did good news at my chiropractor appointment. She said my core is getting stronger, which means my hip flexors and quads are loosening up. I hope that means there's less strain on my knees from above, and if my calves are getting stronger, less strain on my knees from below. No wonder my ITBS has lasted this long. While checking out and paying for the appointment, I picked up one of the cards for the massage therapist in that office suite, since I intend to treat my muscles after the BolderBOULDER. The massage spas do not use the pressure I need, and they don't pay attention to the muscles I refer to.
Saturday I finally got out for a run and completed 4.5 miles. I was aiming for another 5-mile run, but for some reason my piriformis started cramping a little bit around 3.25 miles, so I was paying close attention to how it would bother my knee. It held out for more than another mile, when I felt the very beginning of twinging, so I stopped, and since I was in the neighborhood, it took me 1 minute to get home. I crossed over the 4.5 mark right when I got to my garage. I did a couple activation exercises I'd never done before a run, just during strength training, so that could've been why my piriformis was bothering me. I certainly focused on strength training both those spots after my run, and yesterday.
Finally, I got to Target for some organization stuff. My workout equipment has been strewn across a corner of the living room, and I really needed to get that out of the way. Target had the perfect bin on clearance, and all my stuff fits. It's even tall enough for my Stick and Addaday roller. The empty corner looks so much better, with a couple of cats toys in place of my equipment.
