Training Schedule

I am trying to train for a local metric ride in may. Does anyone have any tips for a good schedule during the week. I am also working a lot right now which is not helping. Any suggestions?

Most ppl say go one day on one day off... but i have always used the 3 days hard, 2 days rest. Seems to work better for me.

That's too huge a question. Go off and research it. Try it. Then come back here with the compaints! Other than that, if you're a beginner 5 days a week is plenty. Be consistent. Don't go three days without a workout. Work up to 100 miles/week.
