I see that I have only been on here for about 8 days and I'm more than half way finished should I set days were I am just practicing or should I continue

I did that too, when I first tried Duolingo, in 3 days, I was halfway the German tree, I tought I was going too fast, but I wasn't, cause I remember everything, and that means that going too fast is not as bad as it looks, there are people that go very fast, but don't know anything, but there are other people, that go fast, and learn fast, and maybe you're on of them.

the downside of going too fast can be missing grammatical rules, such as the one regarding the prohibition of the use of double negatives. 'don't know nothing' is poor english grammar. 'don't know anything' is correct.

It's up to you but you probably have not yet seen all the words yet in the previous lesson that you've already done especially if you tested out of any skills. Those will come up when you practice (strengthen).

perhaps in slowing down, you might notice that 'going to fast' is not correct, as 'fast' is neither a destination nor an infinitive. It is, rather, an adverb which requires another adverb to modify it- 'going too fast.'
