Strength/power before metcon/endurance... generally speaking. If your work capacity is high it doesn't matter too much.

Why? One tears your muscles up physiologically and the other tears them up both physiologically and metabolically. I'll leave you to guess which goes with what. Resistance to physiological damage can be built up while metabolically it's hard to replenish enough glycogen to get effective workouts in the same day.
