Try searching: proper bedding of brake pads on Google. When I retrofitted to the 2005-2007 larger brake calipers, I mainly drove regular and braked a bit harder when approaching a red light, several times a day for a full week. I don't recall getting special instructions from the technician on proper bed-in/seating of the newly installed brake pads and discs/rotors (perhaps he presumed I knew how).
There's data on tire rack, but I couldn't get the link to work.

In a safe area, apply brakes moderately from 60mph to 30mph and then drive approximately 1/2 mile to allow the brakes to cool. Repeat this procedure approximately 30 times."
