Hardwood floors

I sanded floors with a drum sander-20 grit paper--too aggressive. Now I have blonde skid marks all ovr. I sanded with orbital 60-80-100 grit. I plan to use a water based sealer and stain, then water base polyurethane. Will these skid marks blend in OR do I need to re-sand to even out? If so what grit to remove these skuffs.?

I fear the difference between 20 and 60 was too big a step. Are there grits available in between? If not then lots of 60 until they disappear.
