That's only a short nap in engine terms - I wouldn't do anything out of the ordinary; make sure it has oil in it, and start it. Don't over-think this - with the cam already broken in, just drive it.

I agree with JohnZ...   but besides oil, also make sure you have cooling  and gauges hooked up and working so yuo can monitor engine performance while driving it.. S**
