Need input on 11-Day Ireland Trip!

Hi, I will be going to Iceland at the end of August for 11 days / 12 nights. I found a good 10 day trip itinerary for a self drive tour around the ring road that I am considering doing but need some guidance on how long to stay in Rejkavic and what to do with the extra day.

1) Is 1 day enough to see the sights in Rejkavic?

2) would people recommend seeing Rejkavic at the beginning of the trip or end of the trip? We usually like to rent a car at the beginning so we don't have to go out of the airport to the city and then back to pick up the car 24 or 48 hours later to start our drive.

3) I need some help figuring out what to do on my extra day - see itinerary below

4) Can anyone give me an idea of how long these days are? Is this a relaxing pace or are these pretty long days with a lot of sightseeing on each day?

Day 1 - arrive, spend day in Rejkavic

Day 2 - golden circle, overnight hvolsvollur

Day 3 - skogarfoss, vik, Canyon Fjaðrarárgljúfur, overnight skaftafell

Day 4 - Vatnajökull National Park and Glacier Lagoon, overnight Hofn

Day 5 - Myvtan (Mt. Búlandstindur, Petra´s Mineral Collection, Egilsstaðir, Krafla, Námaskarð, Hverfell, Skútustaðir)

Day 6 - Myvtan (Lake Mývatn, Húsavík, Ásbyrgi, Jökulsárgljúfur, Dettifoss and Mývatn Nature Baths.)

Day 7 - Lake Mývatn area, Goðafoss and Akureyri, Vatnsdalshólar, Þingeyrakirkja

Day 8 - Snæfellsnes Peninsula (Eiríksstaðir & Guðrúnarlaug)

Day 9 - Snæfellsjökull glacier, Dritvík cove, Lóndrangar, Hellnar, Arnarstapi and Djúpalónssandur

Day 10 - Borgarnes, Hraunfossar, Barnafossar, Snorrastofa, Reykholt and Hvalfjörður

Day 11 - ? Spend another day in Rejkavic? Or add another day to Myvtan and do a day excursion to see Askja?

Thanks so much!
