I have seen many do that, timing their march so they get across the boards in 4 bars (or so), then turn for 4 bars, then step off on the repeat/next part..

I distinctly recall my instructor saying "don't do that- you never know when the space you are giving won't time out that way, plus its called a 'march' not a 'march in place'"..
