Not necessarily a mistake, but probably unnecessary. with the listed grain bill you probably wont find any noticeable improvements from a complicated rest schedule.
I would calibrate your thermometer with ice water if you havent, also are your volumes you are collecting right on? if you intend to make, say a 5 gallon batch but accidentally collect 5.25 gallons you will significantly skew your numbers (are your O.G. numbers as expected/what kind of efficiencies are you getting?)
