Post 1200 Mile Service

I finally reached 1100 miles and was able to get the initial service completed. I have been careful with the initial break-in to this point except I exceeded 5500 RPM's a couple of times but never went over 6K. The manual says to gradually increase RPM's and speed, but as you know that is a difficult thing to do. At what point can I really start driving the car without compromising the long term future of the engine. I plan to keep this car.
