Well, firstly..playing with 1buy-in was never going to work, even for the very best. Variance is a part of the game and you obviously ran very hot to run it up, then the next day, you gave it all back.
You need to feel ok mentally to play good poker and if you are, then your session should last as long as you feel good about it.
As soon as you start tilting/playing bad or if you're simple being run over by better players, it's probably best to quit and find a new table or just end your session.
In a nut shell, because the limits you play are micros you should only be playing when you feel like you want to play and can play good poker.
