Clutch Cable adjustment question

mk4 just under 2k miles.
complete kit supplied adjustable clutch cable, with firewall adjuster. Willwood pedal box, quick time bell, ram clutch, tko 600.

I havent had to adjust the cable since I built the car, however a couple weeks ago the cable stretched and I had some trouble shifting gears and the pedal was real loose. So I moved out the firewall adjuster some, and made a small adjustment on the cable end down at the clutch fork. I achieved the dimes width space on the plastic flange.after that all was good for about 50-75 more miles or so. Yesterday I took a ride and noticed that I was having trouble shifting again, I can shift every gear but it feels a little clunky. I checked the tension on the cable again and there was alot more slack at the plastic flange again. could the cable have stretched again, that quickly? I now have the adjuster almost all the way out. I did check the fork position and it appears to be at the right distance in the opening as per the instructions when i installed it. Do you guys think that the cable stretched a second time? is this normal?
thanks for your input.
