Automation: Check if timer is running

I have a shortcut automation to start a Timery timer when a certain app is opened. I often switch between apps when the timer is running and when I come back to the app a new timer is started. Thats expected and fine since I can see the total amount anyway. But ideally the automation checks if a timer is already running and just continues it without restarting. I couldn’t figure how to adjust the automation so it does that. Any hints how I could tweak it?

I am not a time tracker, but if Timery does not allow you to query what timer is running, then if, and only if, you always trigger timers with Shortcuts, you could track what timer is running by storing an identifier in Data Jar, a file in iCloud, etc. Basically any persistent data store.
