My understanding is that this won't work if you do not really get on the brakes, but not to the extent that you glaze the pads. Braking normally will not achieve anything different at this point; you are doing that when you are driving around anyway. Also, clarification: You should not come to a stop between the runs, and there is no need to accelerate quickly.

These instructions are similar to what I'm suggesting and seen at various other places:

They do suggest that you should warm up the brakes first. Try it at your own risk...
Thanks for the link Lucid
