You need to clock in *and* clock out. 

In the planner day page, put the cursor on the task you are about to
start and hit C-c C-i to check in and start clocking time. Then,
either use C-c C-o to check out when you are finished working on the
task or hit C-c C-i to start working on the next task (which will
perform an implicit clock out). 

At the end of the day, before you leave, you need to remember to do a
C-c C-o or you will continue recording time even when you are not
there! You can hit C-c C-o when the cursor is anywhere in the day page
to check out (you don't have to have the cursor on the task you were
clocking time for). Timeclock will also automatically stop clocking
time on a task if you mark the task completed, cancelled etc.
