Take advantage of that opportunity.
Every time you test, ask yourself what one thing you can do better this time. If you're feeling ambitious and things are generally under control, go for two or three things better. Try a new test technique. Try a new ordering of the test plan to shake out problems earlier. Fix a couple of the reporting oddities in your test infrastructure that have been bothering you.
This isn't news. I've written about changing up your test plan before. It still bears repeating. Do what you were doing... and do one thing better.
