I'm planning to let the manuscript rest for a couple weeks (or a month if I can hold off that long) before I start reading it. In the meantime I'll be working on short stories, a form I haven't worked in outside a few college assignments long ago. Writing shorts should be good practice, and I'm hoping it will help me tighten my plot pacing. I'm really looking forward to a few weeks of something different.
