Training in Mexico City and Cancun
Sep-Oct 2008

Fresh, or maybe not so fresh after doing Wisconsin Ironman we headed to Mexico City to see my sister and to continue training for Cancun Half Ironman and Hawaii.  There was not a lot information around about training in Mexico so my sister Verity, who is fluent in Spanish, initiated the investigaitons. 

The Mexican Triathlon Association were extremely helpful in arranging for us to train at SportsCity in Mexico City and Cancun.  The facilities at these gyms were really amazing.  In Mexico City it contained a 25 metre swimming pool and a fully enclosed 400 metre running track.  By using the gyms daily we were able to maintain training whilst exploring the city.  A big thankyou to SportsCity for their assistance.
