Disc brake pads can last from 1 hour to more than a year. If you do a muddy/wet CX race they won't last the whole hour. If you only ride in the dry and don't descend much, they last for ages. I doubt your pads are nearly worn out unless it's been wet every ride. There are metallic compound pads that last longer but they're noisier and wear the rotors faster. I'd stay w/ the resin pads.
Comparing disc brake pad life to V brake pad life is pretty reasonable, they're actually pretty close.
