Sluggish Engine Start

So i've got an 06 prerunner with 90K on it and have never had a problem with it. This afternoon though i got into my truck and as I tried to start it up it took alot longer than usual. At first it sounded like my battery was dead but just as i was about to stop turning the key it started up... this was really weird to me so i let the engine warm up, turned it off, and tried it again to see if i would get a smooth start this time but again i got that sluggish start. the engine turns over for about 3-4 seconds before firing up... you guys have any idea of what it could be? its really annoying me. Thanks

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Five year batteries generally last about five years.

there is nothing like a deep freeze or intense heat to finish off weak batteries.
