Incoporating footy into ultra training

Howdy all,


I am hoping you can help with some training questions I have.


I have ran few marathons/ halfs in the recent past and whilst training for those have managed to carry on playing football twice a week (5 a side and 7 a side).

I have just signed up for my first ultra (the trailwalker 100k in July) and was wondering if anybody could tell me if they carried on playing football (or equivalent sport) whilst training for an ultra. I have scoured the net and bought a few books, but they all seem to say the training needs to be slow and steady.


Any help would be appreciated.
