It's building on the previous portion of the Sutta - "on whatever occasion" follows after having gone to the wilderness, tree, or hut, and having sat down:
"Now how is mindfulness of in-&-out breathing developed & pursued so as to be of great fruit, of great benefit? There is the case where a monk, having gone to the wilderness, to the shade of a tree, or to an empty building, sits down folding his legs crosswise
, holding his body erect, and setting mindfulness to the fore... And how is mindfulness of in-&-out breathing developed & pursued so as to bring the four frames of reference to their culmination? On whatever occasion a monk [does anapanasati]... on that occasion the monk remains focused..."
Elsewhere and quite commonly, "walking up and down" is described. SN 35.120
is the only place I've seen them juxtaposed:
"And how, friend, is one given to watchfulness? In this a monk walks up and down by day and then sits
, thus cleansing his mind from obstructive states. [Similarly for the first watch of the night.] In the middle watch of the night, lying on his right side, he adopts the lion posture, resting one foot on the other, mindful and clearly aware, with his thoughts fixed on rising. In the last watch of the night he rises, walks up and down, and then sits, thus cleansing his mind from obstructive states. That, friend, is how one is given to watchfulness."
IMO, walking up and down strikes me as a different sort of behavior than Anapanasati. I wonder if the Kayagatasati Sutta offered bhavana for the non-seated, the Satipatthana Sutta(s) attempted to sum them both, and the textual tradition ended up fumbling this three-ball juggle through diffusion...
