@Chris Reed, sounds like good progress. You might get there in 7 weeks, although most people will tell you it doesn't matter much when you get there -- your body is adjusting as fast as it can, and what you're really after is the physical adaptations and capabilities that go along with Simple, not the achievement itself, right? But it's a good goal to set and no harm in looking forward. What's missing from your description is the timing that you use for your swings, in practice. As long as your get-ups are going well and not causing you any problems, the swing form and the timing is going to be your biggest determinant. As far s the technique, you're welcome to post a video for form check in a new thread. On the timing, most would suggest taking 10 min or more in daily practice for your swings to maximize technique and power, but pushing the pace once every two weeks or so to get used to doing them in the time standard of 5 minutes.
