Coin this Flip !

Probability Level 4

On Wednesday, your Math teacher gives you a coin.

She says," Keep flipping this coin until you see the pattern Head, Tail, Head. Record the number of flips required to reach this pattern, and start flipping again (and counting up from 1 again) until you see that pattern again. Then you record the second number, and start again. At the end of the day you average all of the numbers you’ve recorded."

Confused you still do the needful like the obedient student that you are.

On Thursday, the Math teacher gives you the coin again and says," Do the EXACT same thing except you flip until you see the pattern Head, Tail, Tail."

Will Thursday’s number be equal, higher or lower than Wednesday's?
