Long Distance Training Book

I would like to find a long distance training book to help me get ready for a 200 mile (over 2 days) charity ride next August. I am 67 years old and ride a Lemond Zurich. I currently ride 12-20 miles 5 days a week, but I am very slow, averaging about 11mph. Your recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

John
