to go to the gym on my days off from running and get some time in with the weights, working on my core, possibly a spin class depending on my schedule, and then relaxing in the steam room for a while. If I could go and just sit in the steam room for an hour without feeling like a weirdo, I'd do that.
If I'm taking a day off of running on the weekends, I usually will go for a long, leisurely walk (about 7 miles). I don't think I do that so much for the exercise (although it is a nice way to burn off some energy) as I do for the peace and quiet. I have a 3.5 year old daughter so the rest of my time on my days "off" is spent chasing around after her. Toddlers are a great workout.
