Really, any pace is good as long as you are able to continue.

At this stage I would be more focused on duration than how fast you are going. Your run should be comfortable enough that you can complete the workout. I believe most of the C25K programs focus on time goals rather than distance goals in the beginning.

Check out http://www.c25k.com for more tips, hints and programs. There is a link to the C25K episode of the Phedippidations podcast - great stuff.
