Disadvantages of speed bag?

I just bought my first speed bag yesterday and last night I was hitting it for about an hour and a half. Is that too much and is hitting the speed bag too much a bad thing?

My boxing coach told me the speedbag is really only about one thing... learning to keep your arms up and building the endurance to do so.

So my non-professional opinion is, you can't overtrain on the speedbag unless you're using up time you could spend diversifying your game.
