stiff clutch pedal

hi , I've recently got my clutch renewed , my subaru is a 93 k reg . the new clutch is a excedy stage 1 230mm , i got the flywheel skimmed , a new spigot bearing put in , I've done about 126km , I've not thrashed her at all I've kept her around 2 and a half to three thousand revs , driving like a sunday oap . today i felt the pedal was stiffer than usual and the clutch pedal had a strong spring back , the bite is good , theres no smell of burning no juddering , there is a lack of power , its struggling to pick up speed .I've checked the master cylinder no leaks , checked the brake master cylinder , thats fine as well . is got me stumped . if any one can shed some light on the matter , that would be brilliant .thanks for your time .Vic
