Personally, I love the Spark your way to 10K, I modified it a bit to fit where I started, but I thought it ramped up nicely. I will be returning to C25K and then Spark 10K later this year after rehab.
As everyone has stated, your first race - drink it all in the atmosphere, excitement, etc. You will never have a first race again. No shame in going slow - any time at a new distance your goal should be to finish the race, upright with a smile on your face saying I want to race that distance again.
