Just because you aren't running doesn't mean that you aren't improving. Improvement happens when you're on and off training. You take steps no matter what you are doing, whether you are training or not. When I was driving home for 4.5 hours, it's very important for me to keep myself upright. Poor posture over time makes a difference in your body, and because of that, whether you are on or off training, it's important that you keep yourself in check by being in a good posture at all times.
Whether you are training or not, you're still taking steps. Take care of what you do in your every day life, because that in itself is training for your competitions, your goals. If you don't take care of what you do in your every day life, then you might be further from your goal than before. Make sure that your life coincides with your goals and take steps to work on taking care of yourself, so that at every moment, you would be able to work towards your goals.
