Obviously you can't break in three pairs of boots beforehand, but when I
broke in my new boots I carried a pair of sneakers to use during the day
so I wouldn't be wearing my boots for say, twenty miles at the start.  
If your feet get sore, just change to the sneakers and when the boots are
broken in you send the sneakers home or on ahead.
