Is "Yes, I'm in a hurry" a good response?
I feel it's awkward.

Can you walk faster?
Yes, I'm in a hurry.

Thank you

    "I'm in a hurry" means you do not have much time to get somewhere.
    Walking faster means walking more quickly, but does not necessarily suggest that you are in a hurry, it may just be that you like walking fast.
    So an appropriate response to "Can you walk faster?" would be "yes - sorry!" or something like that, but not "yes, I'm in a hurry."
