This is to be expected for the JtR version you're using, but you should use 1.8.0-jumbo-1 instead and either run it with --fork=8 or build it with OpenMP support (in fact, it builds with OpenMP support by default, but --fork=8 is slightly faster if your system has any other load). You should expect around 2000 c/s on this CPU, with OpenMP or as cumulative speed for the 8 fork'ed processes. c/s is not "characters per second", it is more like "combinations per second" (of password and hash) or "crypt()s per second".
