Central Nervous System with "Linda"

So today at our affiliate we did Linda. My word. This has been the hardest benchmark girl I've done so far (Crossfitting around 2 months now).

So I had to scale it -
Deadlift: 250 (20 pounds short)
Bench Press: 135 (45 pounds short)
Clean: 115 (20 pounds short)

It took me just under 60 minutes.

It's been 3 hours now and I still feel completely gassed. COMPLETELY gassed.

What is the reason for this? I'm assuming with my limited knowledge that my central nervous system was completely taxed and spent?

You got it.

Moving lots of heavy weight (relatively) will destroy you.
