T in The Park 2014, settling in and training on track!!

Weds 16th July-Spent last weekend journeying back and forth between Kirkcaldy and Balado to TITP and what a weekend it was. TITP was two and a half days of sun, rain, people watching, and amazing music. It was my first time at the festival and I really enjoyed it. Carol stayed at mine and we bussed it each day from Kirkcaldy the trip taking approx 1 hour even the trip on the bus provided some entertainment!
Friday was a day to wander, watch and explore. Headliners on the Friday were Biffy Clyro who closed the day with the help of a few fireworks. TITP gives new bands or unsigned bands a chance with two stages for that purpose some of which you listen to one track and walk out others like Wolf Alice you stay and listen too. Fridays other highlights were You and me at six and Neon Jungle. A great first day topped off with brilliant weather.
Saturday was main stage day kicking off with The Stranglers and during the day continuing with Twin Atlantic, James, and Paolo Nutini. We are scientists were a find definitely a band to watch. Not so good weatherwise a day when ponchos were on then off then on again. Wellies tomorrow.
The final day was another day not to stray too far from the main stage first on The Red Hot chillis (Pipers) of course this is Scoaaaatlaaaaand you are in! They were followed during the day by Kaiser Chiefs and Paul Weller. After the Chillis we wandered to the Radio 1 stage and caught the end of Inspiral Carpets which looked as if it had been pretty good they were followed by a disappointing Reverend and the Makers! Once more a couple of new bands came to the fore Catfish and the Bottlemen and the Vigo Thieves. quite possibly the band of the day though was Franz Ferdinand who had the crowd in the palm of their hands!
The day ended with a stunning display of fireworks and a see you next year at Strathallan message. TITP was good music, big crowds, missing bands, seeing new bands, surprisingly good and generally affordable food choices – a weekend and a half!
Monday my new tv arrived there is now only one delivery left and that will be my furnishings complete! The flat is taking shape and I am slowly getting stuff put away then moving it and moving it back, I suspect this will go on for months.
Training is getting back on track with a full body session at the gym nothing too heavy. Tuesday I took my weekly track session for the tri club and included a wee brick session. These sessions have been good and hopefully will generate some business for me at the end!
