Which are correct:
1-I went forward too much.
2-I went too far forward.
3-I went forward a lot.
4-I went a long way forward.
5-I went forward to a great extent.
6-I went very far forward.
I think 3 means 'I went forward often' but 4 and 5 seem a bit formal to me.
Thanks a lot Riverkid.
Could you explain the differences in their meanings?
Which ones have a temporal meaning (ie. 'often', 'too often) and which ones have a spatial meaning (too far in space)?

1-I went forward too much. I went forward too often/too many times.
2-I went too far forward. I went forward too long a distance.
3-I went forward a lot. I went forward often/many times.
4-I went a long way forward. I went forward a long distance.
5-I went forward to a great extent. I find this one a bit strange, it means more or less the same as 4. and 6.
6-I went very far forward. I went forward a very long distance.
