Actually, if you search "rearward cleat position" on google a whole host of interesting info comes up. Not least of which, the general consensus is that the whole "ball of foot over pedal spindle" is merely a guideline, not a rule. And while it may work for some people, for others, not so much.
This year I moved my cleats from ball of foot to 10mm further back. MUCH better. More stability through the stroke, less calf fatigue and if not a slight increase in power, definitely no lessening in it! However, if I move the cleats all the way to the back it's horrible. Interestingly, when I ride platform pedals I ride more midfoot.
What do you mean you have the right shoes and the wrong pedals? If you have a clipless system, I'd sort it out ASAP if I were you.

If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, the triathlon must have taken Him completely by surprise.
