Extending (More “bad block” (mud or oil) questions) "closed topic"

Continuing the discussion from More "bad block" (mud or oil) questions:

I would like to understand correctly. @styphoiz replied; " he moves left 1 block and then forward 7 blocks". These events occur after player 1 moves one block left into a mud block. If I am understanding correctly, he does not move 1 block left and get reduced speed to 6 and move 5 forward instead he does the whole 8 now and then 6 in the following round.
