I think most of what you'll hear on this forum with regards to the lifting is to keep the intensity high and the volume low. think triples instead of 5x5. i personally would do the lifting on mon and thurs and drop the metcons on those days, since you're running as well... you are prob better off putting more effort/intensity into the tues/fri metcons (i personally wouldnt do well with 3 days of running, 4 days of metcons, 2 lifting days, and swimming all in the same week, but maybe you recover a lot better than i do, which is def possible)

are you in the military now or are you preparing for basic or a selection process? if in the military now, do you have complete control over your PT schedule or how much of it is dictated by unit leadership? ive seen that interfere with some grand plans before.
