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.

Just going back to the original question, if your wanting to do more on your rest day, try uping pace/milage during training days so when rest day comes, you need it! just a thought.

Got something to say?
