Engine break in time????

Is there such a thing? I want to drive this thing on vacation this week but I dont want to hurt the motor. I have a 06 Fusion with 200 miles on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Also keep in higher gear going up a few hills - helps rings bed into the bore nicely

Also a few hard revs early on help keep the ring wear lip further up the bore due to con rod stretch

And if it does break right away, it is better to get it over with rather than have it break later...
