I've got a hard time imagining how the release bearing could contribute any resistance to the travel. It's got a loose fit over the input shaft which turns with the flywheel when the clutch is engaged. Any resistance to translation over the input shaft would also resist it's rotation and get hot real fast. The ball that the yoke is attached to at the far end has no leverage to present meaningfull resistance, same with the operating rod at the other end.

You might be feeling the internal boot on the receiving cylinder, but I think it's likely a stiffer pressure plate on the clutch.

All things are burning, know this and be released.
