Default Two WOD questions, Macro cycles and Full O-lifts

I'm finishing up the Starr rehab for a back/hip flexor/oblique/ okay I really don't know what I injured but It hurts when I squat low injury and I'm porgressing from SS to the performance menu WOD. Should I just start in when the rehab ends or should I wait till the begining of the next Macro Cycle which I think is coming up soon?

Second, I've never done the full/squat versions of the O-Lift. I'm working on my form as I go using online videos & help and also looking for a book with some explination. Would just working through the techniques as they come up in the WOD (and several warm-up sets) be an acceptable way to approach this?

My 2 cents:

Start now, use this as a warmup for the next macrocycle. I notive you said you've never done the full lifts so using the rest of this week and a half with lighter weights would be more beneficial to you than trying to go heavier without solid form.

Greg will usually say something on the front page.

You can jump in at any time though and make progress.
