Thanks for your quick response. Unfortunately this does not work (I'm
using Jmeter 1.9.1).

The UI does not allow a child element of a thread group under a parent
thread group. I can  workaround this by adding the new thread group
under the test plan and then doing a drag-drop on the new thread group
so it's under the main one.

When I run the test however, both outer and inner thread groups start
concurrently and I see pages from step 3 being hit at the same time as
the pages from steps 1 and 2.

Add a second thread group as a child of the main thread group.  The 
outer thread group is executed once, and contains steps 1, 2, inner 
thread group, and step 4.

The inner thread group you set up to do step three with multiple

That should work.
