    Take short walking breaks during jogs/runs if you're not recovering fully. Save your legs for the long slow run once a week.
    If you can run 10k without shin splints with just a few weeks from zero then you're doing great. I faced common running issues for a long time when I started.

    Well, it's a tough sport but here goes.

    You put the one foot before the other. A little brisk like. Not too slow. Then you do it again.
    Keep doing it till you reach 5km.
    Turn n repeat.

    Well you only have a few weeks left and I assume you can run atleast 4 miles without stopping.

    Run 4 Miles at a pace where you dont have to stop. Doesn't matter if your time is bad, just as long as you don't stop and finish the 6.2 miles you are go. Get a 4 mile run in Monday. Run 5 Miles Weds or Thursday. Run 3 miles On sunday, run 5 miles tuesday. Rest until Saturday
