Default Advice, critique, etc -- Spanking new lifter --workout

I have done body pump for a couple years with very little results. If your not familiar with body pump, it's an hour long very high rep (800 total), very low weight workout class that targets all major muscle groups.

On March 28th, after doing research, etc. I started a 5X5 routine. Here it is:

Workout A

Barbell Row

Workout B

Overhead Press

I seem to be progressing well (in the whole 5 sessions I've done) -- the first day I only squatted 65 pounds 5X5 (hangs head). Last night I did 105 5X5.

Bench was 45 5X5 first day, last night 85 2X5 1X2(fail) 1X3(fail) 1X2(fail)

Barbell rows started at 45 5X5 last night was 75 5X5 (and it felt kinda light)

Overhead Press has gone from 45 5X5 to 75 5X5

Deadlift went from 85 1X5 to 145 1X5.

I am really working on form (I do have a coach). I feel really good, except my quads are incredibly freaking sore. Although, I know these are baby weights. My DL goal is 315, and I know that will take years. Oh -- and of course, I am doing warm up sets -- I didn't post those for fear of boring you to death!

Thoughts? Suggestions? I want to make sure I'm not moving to fast -- or to slow. I also want to make sure this is enough.

Thank you in advance!!
