Rehab in the listening room

The latest addition to my "listening room", which everyone else calls the "living room" and insists upon sharing, is my mountain bike.
I bought a fluid trainer to put it in:
Although quiet by bike trainer standards, this does nothing positive for the noise floor. The simplest solution: turn the volume up. Way the hell up.
Nothing like high volume music when you are pushing through pain.
I'm now walking again, sort of, after busting my ankle Jan 1st and having a bunch of metal stuff (wood screws and plates) put in later that day.
You might think being laid up like that might be a good chance for some music listening.
It was not.
But I find I really appreciate it now that I am trying to recover, and a standard CD-length recording is a nice metric for timing a workout. (Accumulation of pain, sweat and stench provide a great reality check as well). Anyway, I find this somehow much easier than watching the clock, and somehow having the music on, loud, helps, as does the silence afterwords.
Now if you will excuse me, I have some writhing in agony to do.
