+1 on the trainer. I'm 63 and also a former runner and live in the North East. When riding outside is not a possibility I transfer the workout I would have been doing on the roads to the trainer. Truth be told some workouts are actually more effective on the trainer where you can control the intensity without having to deal with wind and traffic lights. If you can deal with riding the road to nowhere holding on to your hard won fitness is doable.
Personally I can spend up to three hours on the trainer if I have to but I really try to suck it up and do the longer workouts outdoors.
