In brief: Wait & See
Having some pain when you resume exercising after a break is not unusual.
Best to start with shorter distances and gradually resume more strenuous activity. If it persists you should see your physician.

In brief: Muscle spasm
Lower abdominal pain after a 10 mile run may be muscle spasms from electrolyte imbalance.
Keep yourself hydrated on long run and choose an electrolyte replacement drink without alot of artificial sweetner added.
