If you can ride 10 miles without collapsing, its probably better to go ahead and ride the commute, rather than train for it.
Take it at an easy pace, so you are not breathing heavily, and spin your pedals freely in a lower gear. If you ride at about 12mph, it will take 50mins or so. During the first few weeks you will notice a real improvement in fitness.

Good luck
Michael
