Our expert says:
2.6km in 20 minutes is very fast. A lot of people don't run that fast, so I certainly don't think it's too slow! What you might do is increase the duration - make it 30 minutes, if you can. That will help for now. Once you level off at 30 minutes, then you can start to look at mixing in higher intensity, and maybe even short periods of jogging.
So I think it's all on track - you're doing really well so early, just don't be too impatient - better to go slowly now and keep giong longer than to rush now and find yourself injured in a month from now. So build up slowly to 30 minutes, taking about 2 weeks to get there (increase by a couple of minutes every second day), and then look at the distance and trying to cover more.
