Back to scaling the WOD

Today's WOD was pretty tough for me:
For 20 minutes on the minute: Men 185 lbs, Women 125 lbs
3 Deadlifts
3 Power Cleans
3 Push Press
After this, do goblet squats (55/35 lbs) until the minute is over
There was a scoring system whereby you add up all the goblet squats done, I got 126.

I'm weakest on the push press so I decided to use 75 lbs for all 3 exercises (mistake #1).  By the 2nd minute (!), I finished all the lifting and had no time to do any goblet squats. I had to rest on the 3rd minute and then Adam decided that it was too hard to do this on the minute so we ended up doing it every other minute and resting for a minute in between.  I felt like I was struggling so I ended up setting another bar with 67 lbs to do the cleans and push presses.  This worked out much better but to be honest, I think I should have stuck to the 75 lbs once we decided to do the minute rest breaks.  The cleans and the push press at 67 lbs felt easier the more rounds I did.  I ended up doing 11 rounds (you can see in the picture that  in my 2nd round, I got zero squats).
