Default Running in Novarossi N12TS1/RT, have i ruined it??

I am in the process of running in my new Nova. First time running in an engine alone. Using the WOT method and kept it at 45-55C for the first 2 tanks. removed glowplug, put piston at BDC and left overnight to cool. Did the same tonight but after the 3rd tank i removed the glowplug and it was jammed at TDC. i quickly put the hair drier onto it and warmed it up again to free the piston, then started it up and did the same again. plug out to cool overnight. with the piston having jammed at TDC for about 2 mins, have i damaged the engine during my break in process??

no offence but you'll want to get the temps up to about 70-80C during running in...
