Default SS & Metcons

For those of you that are familiar with SS or similarly simple lifting programs I'd like to discuss what effect throwing a metcon in between work days would have.

Given that SS is a novice, or advanced novice program, would it be detrimental to the hoped for strength gains to do this on in between days and, if so, to what degree?

If SS to be soley used for strength gains, does that mean that you would somehow nullify the sought after gains by trying to keep up some metcon?

I'm imagining that the answer would be "it depends", but, "it depends" on what specifically? For example, could short heavy metcons be used on alternate days without detriment, or?
