The pedal feel is normal, but the effort needed to stop is higher than normal? Sounds like you contaminated the pads or rotor with something. What did you use as a tire lube?

Gray, I'm assuming changing pads will fix the contaminated pad problem but what do you do if the rotor is contaminated ?

Clean it with carb cleaner, rough up the surface with some 280 grit, and clean it again with an automotive brake parts cleaner.

check the slave cylinder for grooves sometimes if you compress the slave cylinder it will catch a groove and stick, making it hard to stop, does it drag more too?
