As far as I know, there is no way to schedule the retention time in free Macrium.
But in your case, why don't you image to the external disk in the first place - at least every other time. Wouldn't that be easier. If you are concerned about the time it takes, let it run in the background and do something else in the meantime.
Spreading the images regularily over 2 disks gives you added security too in case one of the disks fails.
