ADC help configuring interrupt and triggering STM32f4

Hello, I want to calculate distances using ultrasounds. I configured correctly an ultrasound transmitter to make pulses of 40kHz. Now I'm trying to configure STM32f4 to read data from the ultrasound receiver.

I'm new on STM32f4 and I don't know how to configure properly the ADC interrupt and triggering. The pulses will arrive to the receiver intermittently (for example pulses arriving during 1 ms and the next pulses arrive 1 second later). I want to trigger ADC read the pulses using while saving them in a buffer, interrupt ADC,use a program (already done) to calculate the distance and when i finish trigger ADC again.

My premature code is this:

#include "stm32f4xx.h"
#include "stm32f4xx_rcc.h"
#include "stm32f4xx_gpio.h"
#include "stm32f4xx_adc.h"
void RCC_Configuration(void)
  RCC_AHB1PeriphClockCmd(RCC_AHB1Periph_GPIOC, ENABLE);
  RCC_APB2PeriphClockCmd(RCC_APB2Periph_ADC1, ENABLE);
void GPIO_Configuration(void)
  GPIO_InitTypeDef GPIO_InitStructure;
  /* ADC Channel 11 -> PC1 */
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Pin = GPIO_Pin_1;
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_Mode = GPIO_Mode_AN;
  GPIO_InitStructure.GPIO_PuPd = GPIO_PuPd_NOPULL ;
  GPIO_Init(GPIOC, &GPIO_InitStructure);
void ADC_Configuration(void)
  ADC_CommonInitTypeDef ADC_CommonInitStructure;
  ADC_InitTypeDef ADC_InitStructure;
  // ADC structure configuration
  ADC_DeInit(); // Reset all parameters to their default values
  ADC_InitStructure.ADC_Resolution = ADC_Resolution_12b;
  ADC_InitStructure.ADC_ScanConvMode = ENABLE;
  ADC_InitStructure.ADC_ContinuousConvMode = ENABLE;
  ADC_InitStructure.ADC_ExternalTrigConvEdge = ADC_ExternalTrigConvEdge_None;
  ADC_InitStructure.ADC_ExternalTrigConv = ADC_ExternalTrigConv_T1_TRGO;
  ADC_InitStructure.ADC_DataAlign = ADC_DataAlign_Right;
  ADC_InitStructure.ADC_NbrOfConversion = 1;
  ADC_Init(ADC1, &ADC_InitStructure);
  // ADC common structure configuration
  ADC_CommonInitStructure.ADC_Mode = ADC_Mode_Independent; // independent mode
  ADC_CommonInitStructure.ADC_Prescaler = ADC_Prescaler_Div2; // f(ADC3)=84/4=48MHz
  ADC_CommonInitStructure.ADC_DMAAccessMode = ADC_DMAAccessMode_Disabled; // disable DMA_MODE
  ADC_CommonInitStructure.ADC_TwoSamplingDelay = ADC_TwoSamplingDelay_5Cycles; // there are 5 clock cycles between 2 samplings
  /* ADC1 regular channel 11 configuration */
  ADC_RegularChannelConfig(ADC1, ADC_Channel_11, 1, ADC_SampleTime_144Cycles); // PC1 es el sample time (cicles que estara llegint dades?)
  /* Enable ADC1 */
void NVIC_Configuration(void)
  NVIC_InitTypeDef NVIC_InitStructure;
  /* Enable the DMA Stream IRQ Channel */
  NVIC_InitStruct.NVIC_IRQChannel = ADC_IRQn;
  NVIC_InitStructure.NVIC_IRQChannelPreemptionPriority = 0;
  NVIC_InitStructure.NVIC_IRQChannelSubPriority = 0;
  NVIC_InitStructure.NVIC_IRQChannelCmd = ENABLE;
#define BUFFERSIZE 128
uint16_t ADCConvertedValues[BUFFERSIZE];

Please help, anything will be helpful
