The awareness of the breathing while doing activities does not require of any
particular posture but just awareness of the movements of the body...doesn't
requires to walk as if one was at a low speed motion. One could perfectly make
use of the awareness of the breathing while running a marathon. Awareness
doesn't have more requirements that the one of being aware of what is going on
in body and mind. If the body is in movement then one acknowledges that
movement. That's all.

At home, it is so easy to just sit and meditate, and I do calm down(except
during one occassion). It's much harder on the road because I can't just stop
in my tracks and start breathing in the proper posture. So, I try my hardest to
concentrate on my breathing whilst on the move, and saying something
appropriate to the Heavenly Father as I go along
