It also excludes from compensable time, “activities which are preliminary to or postliminary to the principle activity or activities that an employee is employed to perform, which occur either prior to the time on any particular workday at which such employee commences, or subsequent to the time on any particular workday at which he ceases, such principle activity or activities.
