I think this is pretty ambitious. If you go to the zocalo on the first day then visit the Cathedral, Templo Mayor, and the National Palace at the same time. This is a great first day activity full of culture with minimal walking while you adjust to the altitude. You will have plenty of day left to see some other things on your list. You also might want to visit Condesa after your day at the Anthro Museum and Chapultepec Park.

I think that the pyramids are a 3/4 day activity best done on a Monday since the museums are closed. Puebla is more a full day with the bus ride there and back.

In my opinion I think Day 4 is .. a bit heavy. Teotihuacan is a bit far away, and you do end up a bit tired, sure Xochimilco is fine for that day, but no more.

FYI La condesa is just 5 minutes away by car from La Roma, is a much nicer placer to walk than La Roma, much more friendly for tourists
