Some I have done in the past

Each starts with a warmup and ends with a cool down

1)  10x.25 mile @ 4-5% incline fast with .25 mile easy between.  Alternate each hill rep – 1 with high knees then one with normal running.
2)  4-5×2 mile @ 10 mile to 1/2 marathon pace – 1/4 to 1/2 mile easy between
3)  4-5 x 5 minutes @ 5k pace
4)  Ever 2 minutes run 1 minute really fast – 1 mile pace, 1 minute easy then – repeat 5 times do 2 sets
5)  Run easy pace, but do 1/2 mile @ different inclines – Start @ 4% then 1/2 mile flat, then 5% – keep it up to 10%, if you are going further then come back down.  Or if you are feeling lazy do 1/2 miles this way.  I often do 7.5 MPH flat and hill in this workout.
6)  I often vary pace – I will start 7.5 mph and inch it up .1 ever 1/4 mile to 8 then back down to 7.5 – All easy, but at least something different

** Lots of speed and hill work you can do.

I will try and get out for 3-4 easy runs each week (under 1 hour) and I do the rest on the TM.
