In the name of Allah the greatest

Yes your namaz is valid. It is Mustahab to recite in odd numbers.
(Al-Hidayaah Vol 1 Pg 110)

Sayyidina Abu Hurayrah narrates the Hadith which says,

? Verily, Allah is odd [meaning that Allah is one and it is an odd number] and He loves odd numbers.
(Muslim, No. 4835)
