HEy everyone, I am a 20 yr old college student who has been following
crossfit for about 2 months now and I am sold. I am now done with school so I
want to start some martial arts training.

I found a gym nearby that teaches both muay thai(m,w,f) and bjj(tu,thr,sat)
and since its a monthly fee I want to go as often as possible.

During the day I work at a construction site, (rough frame, residential) and
its a 9 hour day (7 to 4) of physically demanding work. I am also in the
army and need to keep up my running ability. So i was wondering if anyone can
help me come up with a training schedule.

I was thinking 3 miles runs on tues,thurs,sat in the mornings, then after
work going to my bjj classes

on mon, wed, fri I was thinking WOD in the morning with supplementary ring
work and my muay thai classes after work.

sunday is rest, any and all comments are welcome

The WODs are no cakewalk. If you train intensely you will need more rest than just Sunday. Especially if you work construction, do BJJ and MT, run, and do WODs all at the same time.

so can anyone recommend a decent workout plan that allows for adequate rest time?

3 on 1 off works good for most people. Your schedule is a bit different though. The amount of rest you need is different for everyone. You might be able to do what you planned to do. You most likely won't be able to though. You should ask this question under Workout of the Day or Fitness. You'll get a lot more responces.
