Office tank and EI

I'm DSMing a 29G at the office. I'm planning on starting an EI regime on Day 1. Since it's only a 5 day work week I wanted to see if anyone had a suggestion on making EI work? Should I stay with the suggested schedule and perform the water change Monday morning and dose before I leave and on Friday dose Macro in the AM and Micro before leaving? ie.

Monday - 50% WC & Macro
Tues-Thurs-Friday(6pm) Micro
Wed-Friday(morning) - Macro?

Also if my tap water is too hard could I mix it with spring water? or is that basically expensive tap?

I'd dose/water change Monday.
Dose Thursday

Not come in Friday.

I dose macro and micros the same day, if you want, you can dose the micros all 5 days.

I tend to deal with the tap on hand. Most plants will do pretty well.

I agree with just using the tap. Do you happen to know any specific GH/KH/TDS readings?

Not yet, just the basics ie. Ph. My LFS was out of the GH/KD tests.
