Pomodoro timers and productivity

Our team has been experimenting with doing a once a week productivity day where we don't have meetings, we don't respond to emails, and we work on producing as much work on a project as we can. For this week I took this day and worked from home to focus on coding a highly interactive responsive website.

I attempted the pomodoro technique in-which you work at 25-minute increments or a single pomodoro and then take a short 3-5 minute break. After 5 pomodoros you take a little bit longer break. I used the Marinara: Pomodoro® Assistant chrome extension as a timer as well as how many pomodoros I did.
