I just completed the Rapha Festive 500 challenge before New Years - that's riding 500km between Dec 23 and 31. It wasn't easy doing that in upstate NY, but the snow mostly held off this year and I was able to get enough 30 mile rides in on top of commuting. 4700 miles for 2011 and hoping to finally break 5000 this year!

Joe_h: Have you tried the training plans offered by MapMyRide? You may need to upgrade to a paid membership to access the plans. Also, Polar Personal Trainer has a number of training plans. Last I checked, they are free -- a side benefit to training with a Polar heart-rate monitor! If you have a Polar cyclocomputer, you may be able to benefit from their desktop training software as well.
