My mom and I have started doing the Couch-to-5K training and have been using her cell phone as a timer. It’s not working too well, so I’m in the market for an interval timer! We can use it later to do real interval training when working on speed, hills, etc. In the running:
The GymBoss interval timer. OK, I like the color, but I also like that it has two interval settings that you can set to repeat. I like that it has a stop watch too. It comes in this flashy pink, camo, silver and black. Has a belt clip.
Jeff Galloway is really well known in the running world. He has written books, run marathons, put out DVDs. Did I mention he was an Olympic runner? I like that his Run-Walk-Run Vibrating Timer is specifically for Run-Walk-Run intervals, but is it crazy that I wish it came in different colors? Another thing I love is that he has so many resources on his site. Has belt clip as well. $19.95.
Still undecided. I like the idea of supporting Jeff Galloway because he’s a huge resource for runners, but I like pink. Is that really what it’s going to come down to?
