Why is Hillary Clinton Spending Several Days Off the Campaign Trail?

The Clinton campaign said that she is preparing for this upcoming Monday night’s debate with Donald Trump from yesterday (Thursday) until debate night, while Trump is going to rallies. Is this a stark contrast in confidence, or a projection of confidence, between the two candidates? Here’s a paragraph from the United Press International’s article [1] on the different schedules:

Clinton, on the other hand, has taken the more traditional approach [2], clearing several days from traveling the country to instead huddle with a team of close advisers to hone responses to likely questions and strategize about potential lines of attack by Trump. Her campaign has said it will use a surrogate as Trump stand-in to parry with Clinton in mock debates, though who is playing that role has been a closely held secret.
