Extracting 2-Page PDFs From a Catalog

Using Acrobat X.


I have a 142 page catalog, the bulk of which needs to be diced up into 2-page PDFs.  I am familiar with the "Extract" process under tools, but that means a lot of repetitive, manual work.  What I'm looking for is some kind of batch process or a similar function as this kind of thing will be happening frequently.


Ideally, I'd like to be able to just say "extract pages: 9 & 10 save, 11 & 12 save, 19 & 20 save, etc.", and press "Go". 


Things like this are relatively easy in photoshop with actions and batching, but I am unsure how to do something like this in Acrobat.


The catalog itself is created in InDesign.  Should I be barking up that tree instead?


Any help appreciated!
