From a slow first minimarathon to a faster 10K.  Training tips?

Hi all.
I'm looking for some training advice.  I work best with a specific plan and was hoping someone could help me come up with one.  Here's the scoop:


I just ran my first half marathon yesterday in Indianapolis.  I was as slow as I'd planned (11:18 mile ave.) but happy with the result and felt good. 
In 7 weeks I'd like to run a 10K.  It is at a higher altitude (Utah) and a bit hilly.


Any thoughts on a plan that would decrease my long run mileage a bit, but help me boost my speed and prepare me for hills?  I live in a pretty flat area.  In my last few weeks I was running 5x per week (5mi med, 3 mi faster, 5mi med, 10mi easier)

Any help is much appreciated.
