Stealin' my log title! I see how it is!

You may want to do light technique drills before each workout. I'm a beginning Olympic lifter and eventually switched from the CA WOD to my coach's prescription because I needed more individual technique development than I was able to get from the WOD. You're not planning on being 110% Olympic lifting all the time, so there's no need to be as serious about it, but if your technique is at all shaky (like your ability to squat snatch and squat clean) then you should do some sets of drills beforehand. Like broomstick and up to maybe 50% for triples or doubles. If you post videos of yourself doing the lifts then people can give you tips and you can tailor the drills you do to what you need.
