Yeah exactly, you've done well to sort those issues out now. I was still squatting sky high well into my second year of serious training and my Bench never reached the dizzying heights of 100kg until 3 years in. So don't worry about that, it's no accurate reflection of your overall potential.

Unless there's any particular reason why you're starting conservatively, and frankly the only one I can think of is that you've lost your ballsac, I wouldn't take a few months to hit PR territory. I wouldn't even take a few days, I'd smash a PR next time you get to the gym.
Building up, running in, building momentum etc etc are all bogus. You're not trying to jump a wall, so you don't need momentum. You need to get in the gym and smash.
