Default Training plan, age, time limits, goals?

Hi all,
Looking for advice, opinions, criticism, tips, whatever you got.
So I'm 55, maybe 5 lbs over "race" weight, haven't skated for a few years and am loving being back in in. My goal is to have fun, keep myself fit while challenging myself to constantly get better, improve myself; will be time trailing against myself. My long term goal is to skate 1/2 marathon distance strongly in addition to TT against myself at 10k, 5k, and 1k. Fwiw, I will be soon starting a nine week course of radiation treatment for prostate cancer, hopefully it won't interfere too much.
So for aerobic base foundation I was thinking for 3 to 5 months to build up to 1 to 1.5 hours at no greater than 70% of max HR 4 days a week. Then cut down to 3 workouts 45 min to 1hr a week when I start doing intervals appropriate to the "race" distances, while doing one distance skate 1.5 hrs every 10 to 14 days. Any insight offered will be appreciated.
