Transmission and Clutch

Vehicle Information: Model: 2001 911 C2; Year: 2001; Body Type: Coupe; Total Mileage: 99000;

2 months ago I had my clutch and gear oil changed. When first getting going in the morning i notice that 1st and 2nd gear are more difficult (but not impossible)to engage and take a little more patience and finesse.Once the car has been driven for 5-10 minutes and gets up to temp the transmission seems to settle down and shifts are perfect.Is this a precursor to problems, maybe the syncros, or is this typical behavior for a higher mileage car?Also, I have a shifting habit of rowing from 2nd then to 1st when stopped at a light to avoid accidentally engaging reverse. Will this habit cause any additional wear?Thanks.
