just been for a little run and the peddle now feels spongy, it travels to far and if you sit there with the engine on stationary and push the peddle hard it seems to pulse down a bit at a time.

As above, new brakes always feel naff!! Also note, I have seen in the past someone change pads all round and they pushed all the pistons back on all four corners (really worn pads) and it ended up pushing fluid out of the reservoir and ended up getting a little air in the system, as daft as that sounds but it happened and obviously it needed bleeding afterwards and a good clean so the brake fluid didn't kill the paintwork.
