An athlete wants to compete in a race.  The race requires the athlete to  swim to set buoy and back and then trek up a hillside.  Practicing the athlete noticed that it takes her 3 hours to make it to the buoy and back.  Going back for her was much faster (2 miles per hour less).  Going up hill, she was able to run in some parts and walk in others.  She ran 3 miles in 20 minutes and walked an average of .08 miles per minute.  If she swam for 8 miles and walked for 10 minutes, what was her average speed throughout the exercise?
