How about this

// Script (c) 2011/2014 mplungjan
function interval(duration, fn, delay){
    this.timer = null;
    this.duration = duration;
    this.fn = fn;
    this.start(delay);
}
interval.prototype.start = function(delay){
    if (this.timer) {return;}
    var self=this;
    this.timer = setTimeout(function(){ self.run(); }, delay||0);
};
interval.prototype.run = function(called){
    var self = this,
        nextTick = called ? this.duration - (new Date - called) : 0;
    
    this.timer = setTimeout(function(){
        self.run(new Date);
        self.fn();
    }, nextTick<0 ? 0 : nextTick);
};
interval.prototype.stop = function(){
    clearTimeout(this.timer);
    this.timer = null;
};

function setTimer1() {
  //-------------------------------
    document.getElementById('out1').innerHTML=initialMesssage1;
    var cnt1 = countdownFrom1;
    var timer1 = new interval(1000, function(){
        --cnt1;
        document.getElementById('out1').innerHTML = "In "+ cnt1 + " second"+(cnt1==1?"":"s") +suffix1;
        if (cnt1 < 0) {
            cnt1 = countdownFrom1;
            document.getElementById('out1').innerHTML = restartMessage1;
            timer1.stop();
            timer1.start(delay1*1000);
        }
    }, initialDelay1*1000);
}

Open in new window


using this html

<html>
<head>
<script type="text/javascript" src="countdown.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript"> 
// only need to change these - for now set as global vars:
var countdownFrom1   = 11;
var initialDelay1    =  3; // number of seconds to delay onload
var delay1           = 5; // number of seconds to delay between
var initialMesssage1 = "This will start in "+initialDelay1+" seconds"; // message to show during initial delay
var restartMessage1  = "This will re-start in "+delay1+" seconds"; // message to show during delay
var suffix1          = " message is gone"; // text is: In nn seconds message is gone

window.onload = function() { // or in $(document).ready 
  setTimer1();
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<div id="out1">This will start in 3 seconds</div>
</body>
</html>
