I didnt worry about slow flight checks to validate stall vs airspeed indication until the very end of the flight. After an hour of full to varying high power settings, I did a couple slow downs to stall and then landed. Almost 1.5 on the Hobbs on first flight.

This is my exact thinking as well.
I'll be test flying as soon as the wx permits, AND breaking in a new engine at the same time.
