Shimano pedal overtightening

I needed to replace some of the ballbearings in my shimano pedal which was easy enough and I adjusted the cone/locknut correctly. After riding I noticed the pedal was stiff so I reopened to find the cone/locknut had both screwed in tighter. Can anyone give me some advice please?
