Just chiming in here with my advice that isn't in the least based on personal experience (), but zercher squats might be a better substitution for back squats, given that back angle has more of a resemblance to a back squat than a regular front squat.
How are you taking to the power clean technique anyway?

DISCLAIMER-NOT TO DO WITH STRENGTH
I signed up for a 6 mile run before I started weights, my mate reminded me on monday that it was on sunday... Great. So today i had a little kick around in the park and felt ok. So, with my cousin who is in good running condition, i did a 4 mile run, my first "run" in over 3 months. Only times ive run in this time is 3 11 a side matches and 2 5 a side one hour kick arounds.
I remember them saying "40 minutes".. I was thinking, "nah they mean high 40s". (for the 6 mile run)
Anyways, my cousin was left thinking he could do another 2 miles but i was close to giving up 3/4 of the way in, my glutes/hams were literally burning at this point, and my lower back and left trap randomly started hurting at random points in the run. Anyway the time was 29:45. 14:45 in the first 2 miles. My cousin also reckons that was the fastest we've ever done that route. We usually use that as a warm up for martial arts you see.
Tomorow im doing weights, saturday match and sunday weights followed by this run. It's only a charity run but i want to know in what condition im in for it. I reckon if i did the same run again it would improve quite a bit....

Front Squat was still weird, i think it's my flexibility.
Bench was okay, no struggle
Power Clean - Same as bench, technique is getting better
