So yesterday, on a 2 hr ride with some 15 minute intervals, my aerobic decoupling came out to be 8.99%
I rode again today for a bit over 4 hours (finishing off about 16.5 hours this week) and my aerobic decoupling was -1.55%
What are these numbers telling me?

Pretty useless data unless you are doing a steady state effort. It shows the relationship between HR and power. In a steady state effort a high (relative) decoupling would indicate fatigue or dehydration among other things.
