It wasn’t too hard to fit in last minute training because the resort that I stayed at, Secrets Silversands Riviera Cancun has a gym complete with state-of-the-art equipment. Plus, a full roster of activities led by an energetic Entertainment Team. My friend and I started the day with a work out in the gym. On the way there we ran into the London 2012 Olympic mascot and snapped a photo with him. I always get inspired by the Olympics so that was a great surprise on the way to the gym. Then it was straight to the treadmills that overlook the lush green mangroves that surround the property.
Next on my agenda was a bike tour into the nearby town of Puerto Morelos. The bike ride was about 4 miles each way. The bikes that the resort had to offer were not the sleek light road bikes that I’m used to but it worked well and I felt safe on it.
When we got into town we got to be the tourist that we are and walked around the fishing marina and did some souvenir shopping. I loved exploring the small town of Puerto Morelos! In fact, it was one of my favorite things that I did on the long weekend. Check out some photos I took when walking around the marina town.
