Bottom line is that there's no single formula that will work across the board. It will have to be modified according to each individual's work capacity/recovery ability. A guy like Josh can clearly handle a huge workload successfully. Others would get buried by a schedule like that. How much you can handle is something you have to find out through experimentation.

saturdays are heavy sn, C&J, squat
after lifting:mon & wed is generally track workouts(400's, or 300's, or 200's), or hill sprints or bleachers, or a crossfit WOD
After lifting T&TH is generally agility & short sprints
Fridays sometimes I play pick-up basketball or run a few 100's or rest if I'm worn out from the week.
A few weeks out of the year I'll exclusively follow the wod. 1 week out from "big" meets I'll drop running & CF.

Wow...this makes me tired just looking at it!
