thats a good start.  if you compare it to any 10k race results, you could probably knock at least five mins off as you were running alone.

Your time should improve significantly in the first few months.  One thing to be aware of (which is a common mistake) is that if you try to run all your runs as fast as you can, you will end up running more slowly than a slower, more measured approach with an occassional hard paced effort.
