Use crontab -e command and append a line to the schedule

First that comes to mind is this:

00 14 * * 1,3,5 /fun/fun.sh

Suppose you have asked for as this form of schedule will run on Mon/Wed/Fri and then skip two days.

A more proper form will be this one:

00 14 1,3,5,7,9,...,31 * * /fun/fun.sh
