1.2 mile run in 10 minutes any good? ?

I’m a 20 year old female, I don’t run often and never timed myself, however I want to join the British army and the minimum time for the trade I want to go into is 11.23 so I’m happy that I at least beat it by a minute. 

In general, is this a good time?

    It's fine. I know plenty of people who can't run a 10 minute mile. ☺ It's not super speedy but certainly nothing to be ashamed of (especially as you say you don't run often). I run all the time and can't do a 10 min mile.

    Not too bad for a female. In fact, you could beat a large number of your male counterparts in the army. Many would be lucky to do a mile in 10 minutes.
