Lightbulb Opinions please!

Having fitted a recon engine in my car, i'm wondering how many miles i should cover before i start 'unleashing the horses' lol. The engine has new piston rings ( on existing pistons i believe ), new big end and main bearings. New head gaskets etc. So far have done about 350 miles keeping it at a pretty much religious 3k but fook me i'm getting bored lol although the last thing i want to do is to have to end up taking the engine back out again!! I'm guessing about 1000 miles??? OPINIONS PLEASE!!
