treadmill,stairs,bike

I can't stand doing cardio very long. Short attention span I guess.
After weights, I walk fast 2 laps swinging arms, 3 hard minutes on the stair stepper, then 10-15 minutes on the bike with a hill profile. No break between.

Is there anything wrong with this?
Could it be better than just doing one exercise?

thanks

    u should do ur cardio on off-weight days...but if u have to do it right after weights then make sure u had ur shake then wait a bit, couple minutes, then do ur cardio....if u dont like doing it all in one shot cuz ur impatient, lol , then split it up, 10 minutes here 10 minutes there, get the picture??? but i suggest to at least do it at different times of the day from ur weight session

    I go to the gym 5-6 days a week, so can't do it on off days.
    Can't go to the gym twice in a day either. I make sure to have plenty of protein though. As soon as I can afterwards.

    Do you do weights everytime you go, if so you should probably be thinking about doing a 3/4 day split which leaves you 2 days free to do cardio. If you don't enjoy cardio in the gym maybe you want to look at doing sports to increase your cardio activity, recently i dropped one of my cardio days and i have taken up kickboxing.
