English term or phrase:"pacing""binding up""get ahead of yourself"
They would soon need to go up on the mountain and cut an oak , limb it, and let the horse drag it home to be sectioned and split. Ada had wondered if they had the strength for such work, but Ruby argued in detail that it didn’t necessarily require pure power. Just pacing, patience, rhythm. Pull the saw and release. Wait for the one at the other end of the saw to draw it away and then pull again. Avoid binding up. The main thing, Ruby said, was not to get ahead of yourself. Go at a rhythm that could be sustained on and on. Do just as much as you could do and still be able to get up and do again tomorrow. No more, and no less.
