15 and a new challenge

Since I am pretty sure the only reason I was able to bang out all 15 in a row on such sore legs today is that I issued myself a public challenge, I am going to use this forum as motivation for my newest obsession - Linda.  Who the heck is Linda?  Well Linda is a crossfit workout that I previously only thought possible for guys and superhumans (like PK).  It is as follows:  10/9/8/7/6/5/4/3/2/1 reps of the superset:  deadlift 1.5x BW, benchpress 1x BW, clean 3/4 BW (BW = bodyweight).

So what changed to make me think a mere moral like me might possibly have a shot at this? The two videos on the xfit website of two females doing Linda - especially the first video of the girl Gillian banging it out in less than 15 mins.  (Go to and search for Linda to see them)
What's the big difference, besides strength and fitness, btw me and them?  Oh only about 20-25lbs BW... (How is that paleo diet working anyway?)
