    pace himself

    [Amer.]
    Quellen
    A right-handed studend will usually pace himself with his right hand.

    Ich vermute ja stark dass es für "...benutzt, verwendet, gebraucht..." etc. steht, würde gerne aber eine Bestätigung haben, oder auch eine Berichtigung, wenn ich falsch liegen sollte. Danke

    To pace yourself is to make sure you continue at a steady tempo, neither too fast nor too slow, so that you finish at the time you need to. It's usually used for things like races or timed contests.

    With zero context, it's unclear how anyone would need to use either hand.

    Given the typo 'studend,' it's possible that 'pace' is also a typo and that the sentence actually means something completely different.

    From a "Speed Reading and Learning Program":

    "What is the best technique for turning pages?
    A right-handed student will usually pace himself with his right hand. So most often, it's best for right-handers to turn pages with their left hand."

    So there's the context ... just to prove that hm -- us' explanation is correct and pacing is all about keeping a steady tempo.
