As far as the strides go, they can be as simple or as structured as you want them. Personally, I like to just do a few bursts of about 30 seconds in the mid to late miles of a couple of runs per week.

I do agree with Zeke, though. Speedwork, other than those strides once or twice a week, is something that should be well planned and thought out and you can’t make those kinds of plans without first having at least an idea of when you want to peak.
