Barbara to scale or not to scale?

If I can only make it through Barbara by partitioning the sets ,should I scale it back or just suck it up and push through? I know I can make it if i split the sets up a bit. What is the best way to aproach this WOD?

Re: Barbara to scale or not to scale?

split the sets into manageable pieces... but don't mix them up... go all the way through the 20 pull ups before you begin the push ups, etc... if you can only do five pull ups, do them, then resume pull ups until you've completed the RXd amount, then move on to the next exercise.
