I guess it's holding air so all's well that ends well. Pushing the valve in at low pressure is fairly easy but harmless to the tube. As the pressure rises the disk of tube damage does too, but it also gets far more difficult, so the system sort of takes care of itself.
In any case if you didn't rip the tube in the process you wouldn't have caused hidden or latent damage.
