Converting from a 1DollarScan pdf (saved as word doc)

I received a huge PDF from 1DollarScan. In Acrobat Pro, I saved the file as a MS Word document (6155KB); in Word, I opened the file and saved it as a filtered html document (6553 kb).

I added the html document to Calibre (it came across as a zip file for some reason; isn't that how Calibre interprets html?) I'm not trying to convert the file to mobi so I can read it on my Kindle.

it's taking *forever* to convert. (20 minutes and 67% done). this is my second attempt at converting; the last attempt stalled out around 35 minutes converting.

What am I doing wrong? Is there a better way to get the file size down so it'll be more in alignment with other ebooks (at 6155 kb, it's about 10x the size of an ordinary ebook).

oh, yeah, I'm on Windows 7, using Word 2010.
