Meditation before or after exercise?

Just wondering who does what first! I've been meditating before I go running. I've found that focused breathing has been helping build up my lung capacity when running.

There is an existing thread on this topic:

Hey, it works for you.

Maybe, before and after?

Used to do it before and after during Karate, the sensei made us do this. Meditation is pretty ingrained in martial arts culture.

These days just before bed, i have a fiddle.

Have you tried the opposite (exercise then meditation)? how has it felt different? If you are just starting out in your meditation practice, it might help to move physically, and allow the body to loosen up and expend any excess energy, which can help with being still and turning your focus inward.
