Is it the front? Have a look at the calipers, :bigcry: at a guess they are binding, it will get so hot that you can hardly touch the wheel.
Also you may feel a judder in the steering.
It happened to me and I had to replace the caliper, I tried freeing the piston but it came back within a week, I beleive it is a common problem with x trails there have been other topics on this befor. :bigcry: :bigcry:
My wife had the same problem with the Almera. The last weeks: after a few days standing still, the car was only to move forwards with much effort. They (garage) tared the brakes apart and cleaned the gliding paths and put copper grease on all the moving parts. The handbrake has a separate drum with brake shoes (X-Trail too??) and they were rusty as well. They cleaned them too and now it's like a warm knife through butter: very good now, the (hand) braking is even better as it was before!
