A couple of questions for the cyclists

Yesterday I completed my second 50 mile sportive. At about 2.5 hours, I started to get pain on the outside of my right knee and in the small of my back (right side). When I wiggled the toes on my right foot, I could feel it 'pulling' in my back. Pain immediately went away when I got off the bike but returned when I had been riding for a bit. By the end of the ride, the pain in my back was quite nasty. Can this be caused by the position of my cleats? Or is it down to the bike? I have had a professional bike fit, but I've changed my shoes since then and guessimated where the cleat should go, and I also had a bursitis in my right hip last year.

And secondly, would I benefit from a coach? I've been cycling seriously for a year now and I'm wondering if a coach, with bespoke training plans will help me lift my training from it's current 'meh' status into making me all whizzy.

Thank you

Cleats certainly worth looking at. Suggest you cut and paste over on http://www.fetcheveryone.com/viewtopic.php?id=49252 - the usual suspects should be around.
