3. 7:51

4. 7:27 A little to fast.

5. 8:13 I had a quick Potty Break. Went as fast as I coulkd

6. 7:00 Way to fast and I was trying to catch up.

7. 7:24 Still to Fast but feeling good.

8. 7:29 Still to Fast but pretty much downhill.

10. 7:50 Spot on where I wanted to be.

11. 7:54 Some uphill on this one so I was really pleased.
