Er... walking pace is 4 mph, or rather 2 miles in 30 mins....
The couch to 5k plan attemps to get you running 3.1 miles in 30 minutes. Given that you're currently at 2.5 miles you could probably jump to week 5 or 6 of that immediately. That would leave you 8 weeks to double the distance, so I'd suggest adding half a mile each week for 6 weeks and then easing back for a week or two.
Enjoy the race.
