This seems to be a common problem for a lot of folks. I have found that I go through a set of rear pads about every 5-6k miles, or about when my rear tire needs to be replaced (sigh).
My front pads, on the other hand, lasted 24k miles without issue.
I don't ride the rear brake, and I am very conscious of it. I have started to change my riding habits so that I use my front brake almost exclusively except in slippery situations.
