The lap time is just a "snapshot" of the elapsed time.

Make a variable to store the lap time, and a flag to indicate whether elapsed time or lap time is display (true for lap time, false for elapsed time).

When the lap time button is pressed, move the current elapsed time to lap time.  Then toggle the flag.

In the procedure that displays the time, check the flag.  If it is true, display the value in the lap time variable.  If it is false, display the value in elapsed time.
