>Running 101>How long does it take you to warm up?
not that long unless it's a Monday. on those days, I may never get warmed up.
I usually feel warmed up between .75 and 1.0 miles.....

For me it's generally around 3-4 miles when I can comfortably hold a faster pace at minimal effort. However, the first mile or so I need to be 60-90 seconds/mile slower than that pace to feel comfortable. Miles 5+ is when things really start feeling good.
Yeah, I hear you, now that I'm well north of 50 my first mile sucketh much.

0.1 seconds in the summer time!!! Just as soon as I walk out the door, and the heat and humidity hit me like a rock.
3-4 miles for me

I'd say around 1 to 2 miles.

Which is a problem since I cant currently run that far.
MTA: I also get a second warmup at around mile 8. After 2-3 miles I no longer hate life and can get a good pace. Around 8 miles I feel awesome and the pace improves again and I get the could run forever feeling.
