HIIT beginer

hi all,
i've started HIIT training this week (started monday)
and this is what i've been doing, what do you think.

monday, wednesday, friday:-
running, 100% effort up a 15% gradient for 30secs(not using treadmill)
50% effort down the same hill taking 1min.
same again until it takes me 1min to run up the hill.

i must say this training don't half get your heart going,
by the way i do very little other cardio at the moment apart from swimming once a week
any suggestions? is this a good start? i want to loose about 8lbs of fat before my bulking cycle in march, is this achievable??????
cheers

steve

    what do you think about a very slow jog for 2mins instead of the 1 min?
    do you think my fat loss target is achievable?

    If your starting off on basic HIIT, I would increase the time your on the 50% MHR to about 2/3 mins, as from what i believe its the difference in heart rate for the extended period (2/3 mins) to the MHR at 30 secs that makes HIIT as good as it is.
