so, basically your'e doing interval training. Try to have a 1:1 work/rest ratio. Meaning, to start out, run hard for 1 minute, then walk for one minute. As this gets easier, move up to running 2 minutes, walking 2 minutes. Eventually work up to 5 minutes each, and then once you've mastered that, go to a 2:1 work/rest ratio (2 minutes run, 1 minute walk) and you should see big improvements fairly quickly by pretty much doing what you already do, just with a little modification
