GTF, I agree but I also think Mark's situation is fairly common, especially for people who are new to the track or haven't been on the track for a while. You don't realize how easy it is to get out too hard in the first lap, struggle to regain composure through the middle laps, then recover just in time for the final lap.

I would suspect that, if Mark could settle in for 75-76 in the first 409 meters, a pair of 74 second laps could follow that up and he could finish with a sub-74 lap if he could muster a kick off of that. That would get him under 5 minutes and give him a chance to decide how much more he has in him.
