Bad Luck or underlying problem?

I'm relatively new to MTB, always had bikes but never before abused one as much as I have in the last 15 months!

I have a specialized hardrock pro 2011 (15months old - used most weekends - trail centres, bridleways etc) and in the last 2 months I have got through a pair of pedals, a bottom bracket, and on Tuesday I broke the chain.
I am concerned that maybe there is an underlying problem here, whether it is riding style or a component I'm not sure - I was hoping someone here could offer advice? I wouldn't want anything else going wrong if it can be prevented.

The pedals were a bit cheap and nasty so probably at the end of their life, but the bottom bracket and chain going has surprised me.
