Best advice when you're starting out is to keep it varied and not overdo it till you've got your body stronger and used to running distance.
That being said, a good habit to start is having one long run a week, if you can manage running for an hour non-stop then that's ideal, just make sure you keep it slow.
Keep up your one faster 5k session, and see if you can push your speed up a little after each three week period.
Other than that feel free to gradually build up a few more miles every couple of weeks but nothing drastic. Once you've done that for a few months you can start thinking about more formal training plans when you have a goal race in mind.
