1988 GT
When I start driving every morning the clutch is Ok. (If i let it sit for the weekend its even easier). After driving for about 5 mins it gradually starts getting harder. After about 20 mins I have to push it in fast and hard otherwise it feels like it gets snagged on something somehow.
Not sure what it is.
Any ideas?

Do you have an aftermarket cable? Maybe the heat shield/sheath isn't holding up to the heat after you engine bay warms up.

I'd pull the clutch cable out and inspect it for wear and irregularities.

I didn't get a chance to pull it out. But I did move it away from the headers as much as I could and that helped out. I'm thinking of buying some heat shields and putting them around it to keep it cooler.
I work 54 hours a week, go to school at night, and have a 3 year old son. Lol. I don't have as much time as I'd like to work on the car.
