    its great you are running, but it isnt that fast. The last 10k I ran would have placed at 1:02 time at about 330to338 out of 386 depending ont he seconds. I would shoot for 10k's under 50 for noncompetitive running. That would have placed 130ish out of 386.

    You might want to try training at shorter 2-3 mile distances and focusing on improving speed. With that, your endurance will build up for the 10ks.

    edit: also, throw in a long run here and there, but shorter distances at faster paces will help improve those times.

    in my last 10k i got 43:26, I think that's would be bottom half of the pack..for female.. that's about 10 minute-mile.
    btw i weigh 150. 5'7'' if that matters.

    Not bad for a beginner, but as the others have said to be getting towards a "quick"-ish time you need to be doing 5 minute km's. Train on the shorter distances for a boost in speed as cura said, it will help you a lot. Try hitting 5min/km for 2-3 km training runs and build from there.

    ugh, no it isnt. 10k = 6.2 miles... that is a 7 min mile give or take.... You sure we are talking the right distances here?
