Terry Demkiw, 53

customer service manager with Unisource Canada

ACHIEVEMENTS:

Demkiw is a dedicated runner who has competed in four marathons but is in pursuit of a dream: He wants to qualify for the granddaddy of them all -- the Boston Marathon. Involved in CrossFit for two years for personal fitness, this year, he is using CrossFit as a tool to elevate his physical conditioning to help him reach this goal. Demkiw will run the 2013 Queen City Marathon at Regina on Sept. 8 where he will try to achieve his Boston qualifying time of three hours and 30 minutes.

 

1. Favourite workout:

Any CrossFit 'Metcon,' or metabolic conditioning, which is a variety of exercises executed at a high intensity for a period of time.

Example: 15 wall-ball shots with 20-lb medicine ball, 15 kettle bell swings with 55-lb kettle bell, row 200 metres. Completing all three exercises is considered one round. Perform 'as many rounds as possible' (AMRAP is the CrossFit term) in 12 minutes.

2. Favourite workout song:

"I have never run with music. I usually listen to whatever is going on around me, the sounds of nature, traffic or I just focus on my heart rate and breathing. Having said that, one of my favourite sounds is the "crunching" of the snow under my feet when I run in the winter."

3. Fitness tip:

"You can't 'out-train' bad nutrition."

4. What's in your fridge?

"Fresh baby spinach, frozen blueberries, almond milk. Staples for my daily smoothie."

5. What's your guilty pleasure?

"What I would consider to be a reward after a good run or workout, enjoying a glass of wine (or two) while cooking a meal."
