My new 05 has about 800 miles on it and I'm still breaking her in. I'm taking her on a long trip (~7 hours each way) next week. Some of the route is over a few mountain passes, but most of it will be highway straightaway.

Should I do anything special like break up the highway driving so that I'm not driving a constant 80mph? I thought I read in the manual that prolonged driving at high speed isn't good for the break-in.

Drop it into Ds (if it's an SL) or manual mode (if it's an SE) once in a while to vary the RPMs?

At 800 miles its likely your engine is already broken in. Just drive normally and you will be fine.
