You don't have to stop agitating; fixing is to-completion and will proceed slightly (15%?) faster with continuous agitation. You can pause though if you're doing it manually and getting tired, it won't hurt anything either way.

Many of us use rotary processors for which agitation is continuous and mechanised, fixing and washing film is much less of a chore!
