The best thing to do if you're pushing is gank the other lanes/steal their jungle/capture altars that way you're opponent will either be stuck csing at turret while his team needs help or forced to abandon his cs to help his team
Basically, this. The lanes are long and towers are distant - this is to encourage active play. Pushing past middle, as you have discovered, opens you up real wide for ganks. Instead of staying in lane, duck in to the jungle, scout the enemy jungle (as long as they are on the map), and look for opportunities to gank.
I appreciate the long lanes, because I can push and then leave the lane to do something useful, and easily be back in time to stop the wave from reaching the tower.
Be careful though, as a lack of pressure on your lane allows your enemy laner to go do something else and pressure the opposite lane. Keep that in mind.
