Would that be called "interval conditioning"?

I noticed a big rise in my endurance after we bought our treadmill and I started walking intervals, and even more since we ride our bikes longer distances every weekend. Today at work I walked up 2 flights of stairs after already walking briskly for 5 minutes (and taking 2 other flights of stairs along the way), in lower 90s temps, and my HR and breathing weren't nearly as high as it was a few months ago when I reached the top of the last flight of stairs.
