I've had a Gymboss (lost it during the Turkey Trot last year - :( major sadness ... ) however, there are multiple interval timer apps for Android phones as well, if you carry your phone. My husband uses one of the apps, and it runs behind his music with no problems. Incidently, he also runs Trimble Outdoors to track his workout (GPS), and all of these run concurrently with no issues.

I have MotionTraxx for Jeff Galloway downloaded to my Ipod. The drawback is that it's techno music, which I'm not wild about, but it gets the job done. I have a Gymboss as well and usually set that to vibrate while I listen to my music on my Ipod.

I use a gymboss and don't normally listen to music (just my particular preference.) but I have on occasion listened to my mp3 player during a run, and I can still hear the beep from the gymboss even when I have earbuds in my ears. You can also set the gymboss to vibrate in addition to or instead of beeping. That way you are free to listen to whatever music you want to.

I've used the Motion traxx Jeff Gallway mp3 files for both training and for the DisneyWorld Half this year. The intervals are 30:30 or 1:1.

If you have an IPhone there is an app by skimble called workout trainer. It will let you cusomize a workout, save it, and then use it over your music running in the background. It is also free.

Here's Jeff Galloway's Ipod app itunes.apple.com/us/app/jeff-gallowa

One of the difference between Jeff and C25K is the final goal. C25K aims to eliminate all walk breaks for the 5 K distance. Jeff has found that many people run faster and are less prone to injury if they maintain walk breaks.

I've never used this---but there is a thread on the board where it is discussed.

I have an non Ipod Mp3 player. I use a gymboss that is totally outside the loop. It's a timer that allows you to set you walk run intervals. It is very easy to use. I have particularly appreciated the ease you can change ratios in the middle of a run.
