I'm not 100% sure I follow the reason for the drop in distance? You said that your previous walks were 1.1 km in 12.5 minutes, followed by 0.8 km in 12.5 minutes. Surely if you increase to 15 minutes, you'll walk further? Sorry if I'm missing something, but it's not immediately clear why there is a problem.
The difference between the first and second session interests me - why was there such a drop of 300 m in that week? Did you walk the same route? Are your symptoms affecting your walking? Is that the reason they distances might drop?
But the key is that you should not worry about distance, only time. In fact, I would even say that you should not measure the distance - I presume you either have a pedometer or that you are walking on the treadmill? If you are, then I would really suggest that you need to stop worrying about the distance, only the duration - 15 minutes is fine, it's irrelevant whether you cover 1.2 or 1.4 km in those 15 minutes. That's my opinion, I'm not sure this helps you much, I have a feeling I'm missing something here, because I honestly don't know why your distance would go down?
