How long until we can be friends?

My long distance girlfriend and I just broke up a week ago. After 5 months and despite loving each other very much we both realized it wasn't working. We have discussed this for a while and finally decided it was for the best. We both want to remain friends. She has asked that I not contact her for a while to allow us both to heal. How long should I wait before I try to contact her? Or should I wait for her to get a hold of me?
