Default Engine pullstart hard first couple pulls why?

Why are the first couple pulls of the engine tough then the pullstart gets lighter and easy to spin the crankshaft? Is it becauae the cylinder is dry and the piston isnt lubricated until the engine turns a couple times?

There shouldn't be any difference from the first pull to the third. The engine will start faster once the engine is warmed up and tuned properly. I suspect you may have flooded the engine while trying to start it.
