How about pilates? I do pilates on my rest day and its great for strengthening core and working flexibility back into places that running really screws up like the hamstrings. I think its made a huge difference to my running. You can get decent DVDs of it if you don't want to join a class.

I walk the dog. It's different enough to running that it makes me think I'm not exercising.
