Yes.  Usual pruning time is late winter or early spring, but excess growth can be trimmed at any time of the year, except during frosty or snowy weather.

I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

Trim them.  They're not called mile a minute for nothing.

It wouldn't help us, it'd just be yet another Russian medal ::)

We used to have them in my parents house, I used to think they were called 'rushing vines' as they were always in a rush to cover every bit of wall they could find.
