I started commuting last month. I'm a few years older than you and ride 14 miles each way (Decatur to Norcross).
When I started commuting I decided to do 3 days a week to begin with (M,W,F) so I would have a rest day between ride days.
Once you feel you have built up enough strength and stamina, go for whatever schedule suits you.

I too don't go all out in the A.M., at least not until I'm warmed up (6 or 7 miles).
After work my body isn't in the sleep mode so I can push myself a little harder.

The thing to remember is, listen to your body! Don't overdo it. If you feel tired, it's time for a rest day.
The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. - Psalm 103:8

I am a cyclist. I am not the fastest or the fittest. But I will get to where I'm going with a smile on my face.
