E.I. Dosing schedule

I am trying to figure out a dosing schedule for my 37 Tall Gallon tank.

Tank specs are

Lighting - Finnex Fugeray Planted + (I think the par is 30 @18" from substrate and Tank is 21" tall)
substrate - eco complete
C02 - Yes pressurized with 24oz paintball tank and aquatech regulator. 1 bubble per sec and drop checker is green)

I just bought MacroMicro Mix and KH2PO4 from AF.

Yet Another Nutrient Calculator is recommending

To reach your target of 7.5 ppm NO3 you will need to add 691.087 g AF's MacroMicro Mix to your 500.0 mL dosing container. Add 5.0 mL of that mix to your 37.0 US gal aquarium to yield
Element ppm/degree
Cu 0.0091
Fe 0.66
K 11.50
Mg 1.32
Mn 0.19
Mo 0.0050
N 1.69
NO3 7.50
S 4.33
Zn 0.04
To reach your target of 1.3 ppm PO4 you will need to add 33.392 g K2HPO4 to your 500.0 mL dosing container. Add 5.0 mL of that mix to your 37.0 US gal aquarium to yield
Element ppm/degree
K 1.07
P 0.42
PO4 1.30
Starting to wish I just bought the stuff separate but too late now. So I was wondering what your guys thought on this schedule for dosing.
M - W - F - 5.0 mL of AF's MacroMicro Mix
T - TH - 5.0 mL of K2HPO4
Sat - Sun rest with a 50% Water change on Sunday.
