Prerequisites: have no life
The goal is to fight boredom.
I used to have to watch Japanese cartoons(I was into that in college but not anymore), since they had something to watch, listen to, and read. I need all that to keep my mind active and to keep from getting bored.
This time around I wound up watching science and space shows from the BBC.
Computer(or media player of some sort)
something to hold the remotes(a ladder works well)
food(scooby snacks in this photo)
bike and trainer
I broke it down to 5 hours with a break between each hour, and a nap after 3. It was not that boring or hard. Much easier and quicker than the first time I did it.
