I think it commendable to pray all the prayers but not neccessary if you are pressed for time. But since you are able to pull it off, I would stick to it if the burden is not bothersome. However, ultimately, this is something to work out with your priest; do you have one yet? Are you formally a catechumen? If so, you should establish your prayer rule with him. In the interim, until you have a priest (assuming you don't), if you find comfort in praying the entire set of prayers I would do that.
Once you're baptized or chrismated, I would say it's commendable if you do the full preparatory prayers for the Eucharist contained in the Jordanville Book, with the Akathists et cetera, which is something many people, myself included, usually do not do (I wish I did however, but of late as Ive been recovering from this illness I generally only know if I can make it into Church on Sunday morning).
