This is super helpful. Would you be able to give a little more information about how to manipulate this formula? For example, I only want to fill Mondays and Wednesdays. Is this possible?

Hi, Clayton,
To only fill Mondays and Wednesdays into a list of cells, you should do as this:
First, enter the date which is Monday or Wednesday in cell A1, and then copy the below formula into cell A2, then drag the fill handle down to your need:
=IF(TEXT(A1,"ddd")="Mon",A1+2,A1+5)

Is it possible to use this with an arrayformula across a horizontal row? I tried it but having some issues.
=arrayformula(if(COLUMN(C13:Z13), IF(INDIRECT(ADDRESS(ROW(C13:Z13),COLUMN(C13:Z13)-1)), INDIRECT(ADDRESS(ROW(C13:Z13),COLUMN(C13:Z13)-1)) + IF(WEEKDAY(INDIRECT(ADDRESS(ROW(C13:Z13),COLUMN(C13:Z13)-1)))>5,3,1), -1
) , -2))
