Mid-distance running

Students run 3 races of 500 metres with 10 minutes recuperation time between each race. They are timed to the nearest second. The students note their expected time for the first and second attempts. The total time of the three races counts for 70% of the marks, and the proximity to estimated time counts for the other 30%.
