GeraniumV - I was mostly talking about external anchor text, backlinks where you can intentionally create the anchor text you want. Internal anchor text is also powerful, but I can't recommend any particular action because it is so specific to each individual situation.
What you've described doesn't sound problematic to me. In fact it's very common to see the same navigational anchor text twice on a page.
