Not exactly Rx on Fat Helen

The 6AM class was packed today (9 people!).  The WOD was "Fat Helen" (5 rounds instead of 3 rounds for standard Helen):
Run 400M
21 kettle bell swings (Men 55 lb, Women 35 lb) I did 35 lbs.
12 pullups
5 rounds for time
I finished in 17:18 and had to use a green band to assist on the pullups.  Albert (fellow Crossfitter) called me out during the workout saying I should be able to do real pullups but I'm just not there yet (he said something to the effect "Come on Sarwat, you're still using a band, you should be doing it Rx!".  I really would like to figure out how to increase my upper body strength to just be able to belt out a couple of pullups, and I think this is the year to make it happen.  I finished the WOD in "2nd" place because there was this amazingly fast girl (Stacy), she blew me away on the runs (she didn't do the Rx on the kettlebell or pullups though, just for clarification!). We'll see if Stacy becomes a 6AM regular because she might become a good standard for me to reach on the runs.  After the WOD was over, I did 50 situps, I should have done 100 but time was running out.  Albert told me that I was killing it on the WODs (yes, I liked hearing that!) and that I needed to start Rx'ing it all the time.  I would love to Rx all the time but I can't do a single pullup or a full dip!  But that's probably the best thing about getting your ass kicked here, you always know there is something to work on.
