No harm, no foul.
If I read the plan instructions right, we're supposed to adapt it to our own selves. I guess that means we don't have to stay to a strict schedule, we could repeat a day, split it up, do what we need in order to improve without hurting ourselves.
However you do it, you're still improving and getting fitter.
After all, there's only one of you, and that makes you uniquely important. Take good care of you.

suggest if you are just getting started walking, that you break it up - or start slowly and build up to the 2 miles.

example -- get out and walk for 10-15 minutes in the morning - then again mid-day and also early evening.

or walk 1/2 mile one day, next day walk the 1/2 mile and add another block, light pole or some land mark that you will remember and each day go a little further than the day before. over time you will get to the 2 miles.

I walk to Leslie Sansone 2 mile tape - when I have not done it for a while I start w/the 1/2 mile and go the 1 mile the next day and build up over a week to the 2 miles....

I am just not ready to do 2 miles all at once yet. I did the 1.75 miles all at once but I was so exhausted afterward that I went to bed at 8 PM and slept till my alarm went off at 8 AM. And even after that I was still tired and was tired all day! I don't think I am ready for 2 miles yet. I could do it if I could split it up into 2 one mile walks in a day. But is that acceptable for this plan?
