*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com

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.
