The thing I find is that if I warm up slowly, I can run faster and longer. If I leave the driveway running, I'm gassed in a couple of miles, and it's all a struggle.

There's another "older" guy who I talk to and we often joke that the first 1/4 mile is the hardest.    You never know what's gonna hurt today.    After that you can find a pace and a route for that day.    When I leave the driveway, I have no clue how fast or how far I'll run that day.   Sometime, after a mile or two, I find I feel much better than I did when I started.    Listen to your body.
