You could duck tape up your mouth if you wanted to. But its easiest to just breathe through your mouth - you'll get air much easier that way. My mouth is far bigger than my nose!

As to building up speed - just keep up steady running - most runs to be done at a pace you could chat at.  It takes a bit of time, but you will get faster. Consistency is the key. 

Love you too !

54'09" sounds right for a 10k based on your 5k time (well done btw). There are many calculators that estimate your time based on other race times - clicky
