I love ocean and pool swimming, free diving, scuba diving, kayaking and road biking.

When I eat healthy I enjoy my food all day

I believe nothing tastes or feels (being lazy) as good as being fit, slim and healthy feel.

All of our lifes major decisions are determined by the decisions we make in our everyday life. Learning to live life right day by day will put us on a path that will give us a life that will fulfill us forever.

My Goals:
I reached my goal at 44 lbs, and I am maintaining my weight well. Sense I have been riding with the bike club it's real easy to loose any weight I but on. Even though I'm 66 I'm always trying to ride and swim faster, to get stronger and be more flexable.

My Program:
I ride my bike with my bike club on Monday, Wednesday and Friday usually between 35 and 50 miles.
On Tuesday I have a body works and a Yoga class at LA Fitness.
Thur. and Sat I swim 2 miles
On Friday if I don't ride I help my wife with her bussiness.
Sat. I ride my bike, or swim. Sun. If I have time after church, I will ride or swim, depending on the weather and how I feel.

Personal Information:
I'm Dennis Bovee, I am now 67 and I go by aqua-man because I love the ocean. I mostly swim because it keeps me in shape, but I also dive and kayak in La Jolla Ca.
I swim all year with no wet suit, a mile is easy but 2 miles and I get really cold in the winter. My wife Susan and I live in Hemet now, 80 miles north so I don't get to the ocean as much as I would like and when I do the cold really hurts because up here I swim in an 85 degree pool, while the ocean in the winter is in the 50's, but it really develops self disipline.

Other Information:
I love success stories, but I understand it when people fail. The biggest success stories are those who keep trying and don't give up.
The reason I can do the things I do at my age is I never let myself stay out shape vary long. I have pretty much worked out most of my life and I don't plan on quiting.

I obviously have been in la la land and didn't see the news about your horrific accident. I am so sorry and the pain and suffering you have gone through sounds just awful. I am pleased to hear that you are back in the pool and as difficult as it is at least you are moving in the right direction. My swimming continues to suck and I have no injury excuse. I should try and put more effort into it and find a coach...but here I sit. You are an inspiration my friend... keep at it and you will be in top form before you know it.

Well, I'd be perfectly happy to give lessons...but since I was the swimmer - not the photographer...I'm guessing you don't need MY lessons. :-)

I added you as a friend as well. Of course, I've been away from Spark for so long...it took me a few moments to figure out how to do that! emoticon

It's hard to describe turkish get ups. It's easier if you look it up, lol. They're an ab/balance exercise. About the mountain, people also call it El Capitan. It's the toughest hike in SD County, hands down.

Thanks so much for the trophy! That was very sweet of you. I wrote a blog with a little recap of the event so when you have a chance, check it out. It was a Sprint level Tri so 1/2 mile swim, 12 mile bike and 5k run. My swimming is getting a little better but I have so much room for improvement... in every category. I'll keep working on it. The lady who won the whole she-bang was from Kona, HI. She did the swim in 11 minutes.. a little torpedo... and not only that... she is 57 and was in my age wave! Thanks again for your thoughtfulness.. very much appreciated.

Thanks for your comment on my Floor Exercise blog.
I agree, at least a firm surface is better, but padded for sure. It actually aids the performance of double leg raises . My Chiroprator is surprised that I can do them at all. Mostly I just do the other types of exercises, and walking. It helps the stiffness of Arthritis to keep supple all over.
