Good race there R.
Had that impossible added on race time myself on occasions.
I reckon it's because the starters are shitting themselves the race clock won't start when they call the 'off'. So they get it (clock) going first then send everyone away.
Then again. Some of the timekeepers are damn near calling it themselves.
At one road relay I purposely started my watch before the incoming runner arrived and didn't stop it until after the outgoing runner was well away.
The timekeepers added seven second to what I had.
Or the 30:03 which was called a 30:30. That's for a '5' on PO10 for ever.
As Ron Hill called back to some timekeepers once, 'Can't you read an ef....ing watch?'
Sorry about the H, string. Word about real muscle tears. Don't be tempted to go digging about for a week. Can't heal properly. Needs time before busting the scar tissue.
