Your pace is how fast you walk or move. Your pace can also be how fast you do something.
Anything that moves along, or seems to move along, has its own pace. A ballet dance might have a slow pace. A jet plane has a fast pace. A story can have a slow pace, with new things happening very slowly--or a story can have a fast pace, with new things happening very quickly.
If a ride, a game, or even a lesson moves too fast for you, or too slowly for you, that's the wrong pace for you. You like to go at your own pace. It can be hard and uncomfortable to keep up the pace when you'd rather go slower. And it can be boring to stick to the pace when you'd rather go faster.
Remember: someone's pace is how slowly they go, or how quickly they go. If you pace yourself, you make sure that you go at the right speed. And if you pace around, or pace a room or a hallway, you're walking back and forth again and again.
Idea 1: "I pace the room, wondering if (something would happen) and hoping that (something else would happen)."
Idea 2: "When I (do some kind of exercise or activity), I have to pace myself, because going too fast would (make something bad happen)."
