Yes, but you don't need to take it to the extreme of synchronising the end of the label "ah" or "ing" exactly at the end of the action.
And ideally, after a bit of time you'll drop the labelling entirely and just be aware. Events and experiences will come too fast to think of a label, and you'll have to just be aware.
It's easy to get hung up and stuck on points of technique, but just keep it simple, keep it relaxed. Don't over-think the operation.
It's good enough, good enough.
