Other workouts while doing c25k?

I've been doing walk at home workouts 4-5 days a week for 45-60 mins and slowing down to 3, 30 minute walk/jogs a week is going to make me crazy!  I don't want to ignore the advice of the plan though and work my leg muscles too much & not be able to keep up. Any ideas what I can do on the days in between?

    Hello!  I've been doing couch to 5K now for 7 weeks!  I just finished W7D2 today!  In between my runs, I have been doing pilates and mainly trying to do workouts that focus on everything but my legs!  I find that if I work out my legs on my off days, I get burnt out on my runs.  I would suggest doing anything that doesn't focus your legs!    Good luck!

    I remember a lot of people did strength training, especially for their arms.

    "No discipline seems enjoyable at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it yields the fruit of peace and righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Therefore strengthen your tired hands and weakened knees, and make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated,but healed instead." -Hebrews 12:11-13
