In all likelihood, you're good to go NOW, but it won't hurt to do the "vary the speed" deal a while longer. IMO.

I would just make a habit of occasionally running it up a ways, then coasting back down w/foot off the gas, for the first few commutes (along w/what you're already doing). Then you're surely going to be good to go.
