Hard shifting

Hi there,

I am Mercedes owner too( 300E), also i got a Mazda Protege 92, where i find that problem. When the engine is cold, i warm up about 5 minutes(50-60F outside), then when i start driving it is very hard to shift from 1st gear into second (need a good muscle). That problem is bad especially in late fall or winter, in the summer morning is hard too but not that bad. Once i drive a car about 2 3 miles it is okay and smooth. What is the problem with that and should it be hard to shift in the cold starts. I know i am not asking for Mercedes Benz but for Mazda, still i b4elieve you guys can answer me. Thank you
