    Worst thing on a fresh engine is idling too slow. Stop and go driving is also no way to break one in. Just keep the rpm up a bit and take it for a long drive in the country, varying speed and letting right off the throttle every few minutes. It ain't rocket science, just keeping everything lubed and cooled for a few hundred miles.
