Subject: RE: My goal of sub 4:00 1500-I will not stop until I reach my goal.
Seems good. Some of the recoveries are shorter than I could do (e.g. the 800s and miles at 5k pace) but if you can manage that controlled and with good form then no reason not to.
Don't be a slave to the schedule though; listen to your body, and don't be afraid to reschedule or even skip a workout here and there (e.g. the 3x1500m might be a little too difficult with the day before's 70min run in the legs).
If you're serious about the 5k, I'd cut back to 3xmile the week of (or even 2xmile if it's your mini-peak race).
Also, probably worth experimenting with, but I find I feel better if I take a day off 2 days before a race, and run 35 easy with strides the day before - that way my body's still in the groove.
