>General Running>10 minutes at a time (strength training for runners)
At work I get to take 10 minutes, four times a day for "physical fun". It's there way to promote good health and mental well being among employees. I'm looking for some runner specific strength training or stretch routine that could be accomplished with minimal to zero equipment, in street clothes.
So far I've been doing air squats and single leg knee bends (both recommended by my PT for some knee issues), but those are getting pretty boring. I need some more variety.
What would you do with 10 minutes to better yourself as a runner or overall?

Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless
some days what I really need is a nap.
but, oftentimes doing a little exercise is just as therapeutic as a nap. things such as:
burppies (may make you sweat)
single leg stuff
- stationary in a runner's pose
dynamic hip flexor stretch
squat jumps (may make you sweat)
Split squats (stationary lunges)
And the list goes on....

Meditation and breathing exercises (also could double as the acceptable term for a "nap")

A man may never run the same trail twice for it is not the same trail and he is not the same man

Ten minutes of creative visualization can have a very real affect.
There have been some studies.
My own personal experience has been positive.
