You may have guessed from my lack of posts since November that my consistency with my training had pretty much gone down the toilet. If you did, you were correct.
I really underestimated how hard it would be to stay motivated as a "loner" CrossFitter. I tried a few things to get my motivation back, but nothing really stuck.
This morning I did my first WOD at my new CrossFit home, and I am SO glad that I found them. The idea of struggling through this alone for the long term was really getting me down.
But now I have the wonderful people at CrossFit Rifles to sweat, struggle, learn and laugh with. It feels amazing to have a local CrossFit community to be a part of again -- of course I will always have my CF KoP peeps who have me as a satellite member. :)
We did a pretty simple team WOD, and I am physically wrecked. It will be a frustrating process to get back to where I was in terms of conditioning, strength and mental toughness, but it will be worth it.

On ring dips, I self-assisted with one foot, but tried to do the negative unassisted
