I would go for the 9 next week, otherwise you are trying to go from 6k up to 9k in one jump. Plans aren't written in stone, you won't come to any harm if you re-arrange the odd run.
I wouldn't worry either if next week you only do 7 or 8, just build gradually and you'll be fine. If you can complete the plan and go into your race knowing you've run 11,12k or whatever, that's great, but you don't have to. Better to get to the start well prepared with a good base than exhausted/injured after slavishly following a plan.
