Noob question. Cracking single unsalted md5
I'm getting started with hashcat, trying to crack a simple md5 hash.
I've read a few tutorials, but most of them use lists. I want to generate a hash (11, in this example), then crack it specifically, so I get a better feel of what hashcat is doing.

Can anyone point out what I'm doing wrong?

 The wordlist or mask you are using is too small.
 Therefore, hashcat is unable to utilize the full parallelization power of your device(s).
 The cracking speed will drop.
