its a good routine mate, i would recommend running further distances, but if you are just starting to get fit then you can build up the miles as your fitness progresses.

Agree with dj1uk3 running longer distances like a 10k once or twice a week will help you.. to get cardio up go do spinning aswell.. will build power in your legs and give you a good cardio workout...
Think off it like this... train like an Ironman atlete for your cardio but train like an rock climber for strength trainging... then trough in some long forced marches with a bergen on your back.. trust me that is an all other ball game..
a nother thing i do is to swap mix and match and keep changing my training... so i dont have an training program.. i train 6 days a week and maybe 7 some weeks but i dont have a set program i work on... this keeps the body in shock all the time and get you to gain faster and stronger...
but this works for me and every person responds difrent...
but you are welcome to give it a go...

have a good one mate!

You've *text deleted* be pretty fit to skip for that long,
I usually skip for about 2 minutes before and after a run and I find that pretty tough.
