    When I am on the treadmill or on a bike and riding, I generally pray Holy Rosary in time with each step/pedaling, establishing a consistent pattern.

    On the treadmill, with it's monitors, I notice a 4-5% decrease in heart-rate when meditating when compared to not doing so. While unmeasured, my breathing seems more controlled as well.
