Brian,
I started with just the warm up for about 3 weeks. I'd run or bike after, just the same type of work-outs I used to do before CF. After a few weeks your body will adapt, dips/pull ups get easier, these basic warm ups are like MMA drills, they allow your body to develop the muscle memory it needs to start harder movements like the clean and jerk or snatch. As to fatigue, you adapt by progressing gradually, scale the WOD to your ability and substitute exercises you can't do or don't understand fully. Utilize the FAQ and readboard, the search function is your best bet, as most things we as newbies need help with have recieved expert advice which is still available if you search the messages.
Overall, best of luck, you're on your way to a greater fitness level than you've previously enjoyed.
