Rest for about the same time you worked out. If you worked for 10 seconds then take 10 seconds of rest. It is because to increase the strength in those tendons and joints for the those speed assets out there

Stand with one feet distance apart. Your arms should be bent along your sides.Bend the right knee and kick your butt with the right heel.As your leg comes down flex the left knee and kick the butt with left heel. Swing your arms as jogging. Repeat this for 10 seconds and take a 10 seconds rest to increase the strength.
Skip fast towards forward lifting knee to waist level while keeping your back leg straight. Continue moving forward in this manner. Switching legs faster and moving forward. Swing your opposite arm to the leg on the ground. Repeat it for 20 to 30 seconds and take rest for 40 seconds.
