How useful is cross-training?

Running is a funny thing.  Often times our desire to lace-up is inversely correlated with how much running we are actually able to do.  When we’re feeling great, sometimes finding the motivation to train can be difficult. On the other hand, when we’re injured, often ALL we want to do is run.
When I see injured runners, often I am asked about the efficacy of cross training.  Is it time well spent, or should an injury just be seen as a time totally away from training?
