It is important to put things into perspective. You are training for the Kokoda Track and need to be both physically and mentally prepared for the adventure. You need to ask yourself: where is my fitness level right now in relation to this specific training program? If you are a marathon runner or an elite athlete / footballer then you are fit, there is no disputing it. You are fit for your chosen sport. But you are not specifically fit for the Kokoda Track.

If you assume that you are extremely fit (based on your fitness level in other activities) and therefore decide to commence the Kokoda training program at week four or five you will increase your chances of developing overuse injuries, which unfortunately will not show until two to four weeks later. You only need to do the math to realise with the time allocated for you to recover / rehabilitate / recondition you may have missed your trek. It is strongly recommended you be conservative in your initial assessment of your fitness level.
