Thanks again for the input.

I think I'm going to go with the beginning barbell workout Lyle McDonald outlines in the Beginner's thread. It's more-or-less what I've been doing for the past month (same exercises, but more sets and one more time per week). I think I might keep the reps to 5-8, though - a compromise between McDonald's approach and Starting Strength (and also what McDonald recommends in another article on his site).

If I have the energy, is there any harm in adding a few runs per week on non-lifting days?

Once I'm in better shape, I might re-evaluate CF.
