Milage before changing brake pads

I have just serviced my bike and have found that at 13000 kilometers the front brake pads need changing whilst the back brake pads are only half worn down,what sort off milage are you all getting before changing the pads.

I replaced my front pads at 10k miles. The rears still look OK. I suspect
a few days at the track put some extra wear on them. The bottom pad
was about a dime's thickness. Ridiculously easy to change too
