    did this yesterday as a 150 pound bodyweight actual is around 148)

    225 DL
    150 Bench
    115 Power clean

    11:43

    A little slow for me but not bad. Kind of sandbagged from the start thinking I was going to save it for wednesday, but then went fast in the end.

    I remember many o’ times when Robert would be all kinds of bummed out if ever he had to miss a WOD, & I never really got it…well, I get it now! Thanks to Redstone Arsenal FD, I don’t get to WOD today & I’m uber butt hurt about it! This is the first benchmark WOD that’s come up since I started & I was stoked about it 🙁

    • Kristi Simmons says:

      YAY!! OT got cancelled!! I can do LINDA!! Whodathunk I’d be so excited to do Linda? (he he he, I’m gonna do Linda)

    • AmandaJ says:

      I wondered what was wrong with you?!?!? Hehehe….glad you get to do Linda 🙂

    • Tasha W says:

      LOL! Kristi, this makes me laugh! I’m so happy you get to do Linda, too! 🙂

      I will be there cheering you all on. (No Linda for me – I will be doing Baby Helen, which really just sounds even weirder!) 🙂

    • AmandaJ says:

      Haha, Tasha that’s funny! Hopefully I will see you inbetween classes, it’s been forever!!!

  3. Kristi Simmons says:

    Thanks Tasha! I may have to hit the 5:30 class, I gotsta get my hair did & don’t know if she’ll be done in time for the 4:30.
    I hope to see you either way! (and yes, “doing” Baby Helen trumps Linda)

  4. Kyle Mosier says:

    Did this one in a little less than 24:00. Not sure exactly because I started after Ron finished his DL and I didn’t look at the clock when I started. BW is 180, but I did 225/135/115 because I needed to scale the bench press and I wasn’t going to push for the other two if I had to scale one of them.

  5. Robert S. says:

    My plan to do two WODs today has resulted in me being pretty pissed at myself. Did Linda at lunch and I am not happy with the results.

    24:54

    Rounds 10 & 9 as rx’d (240, 160, 120)

    Everything went to crap after that. Scaled the DL to 210 and bench to 140. Stayed rx on the clean. I have never had to scale this WOD. In fact I did it 5# heavier than rx’d last time. This makes me angry. I suppose I will take it out on the CFFB WOD tonight. On a good note the cleans felt good today.

  6. Aaron says:

    Rx’d
    24:15 (210/140/105)

    Clock said 25 even when I finished but I started :45 after Robert finished his DLs. First time doing Linda all the way through as rx’d, stoked I did all BP’s unbroken. I might have shaved a couple minutes off if I didn’t have to stop and add or remove plates, but then again the extra rest more than likely helped on the BP’s. I guess I’ll never know. I’m not complaining though, I <3 Linda and partnering with Robert, he always brings the intensity…even if some of his screams were because he was scarred by Ryan's playlist.

    Scaled in 20:25 (125/55/65)

  8. Katie says:

    DL: 165 / BP: 75 / CL: 65 rounds 10 -> 5,85 rounds 4 -> 1.
    23:31… forgot to subtract my start time on the white board at the gym.
    Thanks katy and julie for letting me work in w y’all!

  9. Todd Mc says:

    Scaled to approx 75% of body weight in 22:42 – 235/155/115

  10. Ron Wood says:

    Scaled to 225/135/115 in 22:43

  11. Kerri says:

    Scaled: 175/100/95 Made it 10–>4 in <26 min.

    Linda was tough, but I really liked that wod….I think that's my first time with her.

    • Kerri says:

      Correction: I did it on 11/28/09
      205/105/95-10->8
      Big improvement, but not sure if it’s because I went from 205# down to 175# on the DL, or if I’m just that much stronger in my upper body. Went down 5# on BP this time, but got 22 extra reps of everything.

      Not sure what the cutoff was back in Nov, but I bet it was either 25 or 30.
