I like the 'old school' idea of picking up stones on the run and focus on carrying them in the right running form.  That is the ultimate high-reps and running-specific upper body strength conditioning and can be done really easily for 2-3 runs per week.  That said, I also like push-ups and chin-ups for the same reason that I like the routines that Jay Johnson has in his videos, can be done with very little and inexpensive equipment right at home and right after runs, no need for gym memberships and special trips to the gym.
