It is acceptable to the ARRL to clearly note your off times on your summary
sheet included when you submit the log.   I've always done it this way with
no problems.   In fact, until this very moment I didn't know TR allowed you
to insert the On/Off times into the log.  I never did get around to learning
more than the basics for logging, etc. with the software.

The "slip of paper" mentioned for keeping track of log times still works
well and you can look at it while in a sleep-deprived fog and know how
much off time you have left.  I usually keep a running total of time already
taken next to the exact times I have taken off (n), plus a reverse total
tells me how much off time I have yet to take (6:00 - n).
