Help me rewind Audacity when in the middle of recording (please)

I am recording a list of names on Audacity. Usually, when I go wrong, I know I've gone wrong. I'd like to be able to rewind to where I was about to go wrong and re-record over the wrong one, rather than adding a new version of the name after the wrong one then going back later to cut out the mistakes. So the ideal: "Peter, John, Rabbit" [rewinds to end of John] "Robert, Paul ... " and I end up with a tape saying "Peter, John, Robert, Paul ..." rather than "Peter, John, Rabbit, Robert, Paul ..."

I am using a PC. Yes, the Audacity instructions probably do tell me somewhere, but I am not experienced with the terminology plus Mr LyzzyBee, who is more technical than me, couldn't find how to do this too. I know I've done this with other software when recording an audio book for a radio station ...
