Sorry about the double post, I posted this in the WOD thread as well.

Going to do Eva this afternoon.
Last time I scaled;
5rft
800m
53# kbs 20 reps
pull-ups 20
Time:
38:42

I was thinking of scaling to 30, 53# kbs and 30 pull-ups, but I think the pull-ups would really have me at a crawl by the third round.
My max rep kipping pull-ups is 26, dead hang 17.
Just kind of thinking-out-loud.
Any suggestions?
Scale up or get time lower first?

Personally, I like to try and go for an apples to apples so my preference is to do the same thing I did the time before but try and crush it.  Or just not suck.  Six of one . . .

Well, 150 pull-ups would really suck.

I have actually used this scaling twice, the first time at 44:35.

That’s what I’m sayin . . .
