It's doable but you are going to be busy on Thursday. If you have the energy after the Louvre you could go to the top of the AdeT to admire the view and then skip the towers at Notre Dame cathedral. Also I'd suggest going to the Sainte Chapelle first getting there 30 minutes before it opens to minimize your waiting time there.

Good luck!

You should be able to squeeze more in on Wednesday. Louvre closes at 9:45P and Arc de Triomphe closes at 10:30P. On Thursday, w/ the pass you should be able to avoid the lines in all the places you want to visit except Notre Dame Tower. I would St. Chapelle, Conciergerie, Louvre and Arc on Wednesday. Pompidou, Invalides, Pantheon etc. on Thursday. It also depend on when you go, but during low season you can definitely do all the above mentioned easily. Have fun.

the crypt and Conciergerie tend to be uncrowded and no lines, so they are easy to fit in when at ND. 20-30 min each

If you feel pressed for time, skip the Crypt.

An interesting way to make good use of time when there are two of you is to take turns waiting in line at the Sainte-Chapelle. One waits in line while the other goes next door to see the Conciergerie, then you switch. Kills two birds with one stone, as they say, and I've seen the line for SC security to be long enough to give you enough time to do it. If the line is really long for the ND towers, you can do the same thing to visit the Cathedral. Obviously, for people who want to share the experience, it doesn't make sense, but if you're able to enjoy places on your own, it's an effective way save time and see more.
