Default startin CA WOD

I am a novice lifter at best and just got done a strength and mass gain phase of trianing which has left me longing for some real Oly lifting experience. I am ready to start the CA WOD....

I really don't want to wait for the next macro cycle and I am worried that if I start on a Bulgarian cycle I wont have allowed for enough recovery since I have just finished this High Intensity strength phase. I was thinking of takeing a week or two to do some stability and form work with some moderate and low intensity and just enough heavy lifting to be sure I am holding on to my newly aquired strength and mass. I also have a Certification with Coach Burgner coming up in Febuary and I am excited for some hands on learning... Does it make sence to wait for the second strength cycle in the current Macro? One bennifit would be that I would be attending the cert before the first bulgarian cycle (2nd in the macro but my first). I would honestly like to follow the WOD that is being posted for the sake of fun and community as I have been on my own rescently and while I enjoyed it I would love to follow a herd for a while. However I am open to the suggestion of following the back logs.

Any way I am hopeing for some suggestions and experience with regards to begining the CA WOD and am willing to answer any questions which may be helpfull.

Why don't you go back in the archives and start at the beginning of the current strength cycle and just be 3 weeks behind?

Thanx Gregg I have not been around a computer so I just got the reply I figured the best way to do it would be to start at the begining.

I was hopeing to keep current so I could post to comments and stuff for fun..... Not that big a deal as I have been training on my own for a while now.
