Start again

Restart: On 4th wall (starts facing 3:00), after 12 counts, now facing 12:00.

Fun option! On wall 7, which starts facing 6:00, the beats are particularly strong on counts 5-8 in the 2nd section (facing 3:00).
Rather than doing your 2 walks and 3 runs you now run fwd on counts 5&6&7&8 hitting the strong beats in the music. ? [3:00]

Ending: To hit the last beat in the music do the following: Finish your 8th wall (now facing 12:00).
There are only a few beats left in the music.
The music slows down but follow the original speed of the music doing the first 4 counts of the dance,
then walk walk R fwd (5), walk L fwd (6), shuffle fwd R L R finishing with a R stomp fwd on count 8 (7&8)?
