Having just donated blood, I wonder how long I should wait before exercising. The doctor advised me to avoid running, and sports for around 2 days. I wanted to know if this applies to non-cardio activity as well? I plan to stay off pretty much all exercise for 2 days, but I wanted to know if that's ok, and wont make me lose the gradual strength and endurance I gained over the last week or so?
Everything is okay in the end. If it's not okay, then it's not the end.

You won't lose any significant amount of strength or conditioning in 2 days. Many weightlifting programs run on the assumption that you will need 24-48 hours between workouts to recover.

I used to work blood drives and give blood also. You're arm can't be used for anything strenuous for 24-48 hours. General physical exertion is about the same time, otherwise you may get dizzy and have your vision go blank for a moment. I recommend two days minimum. I won't give blood unless I have at least that much of a break. Muscle wise, you won't loose much, but make sure to eat really healthy and drink lots of good fluids.
