Tri-X and D-76 clone, sounds like a classic and well understood combination. Uncle Kodak as well as all the cousins online will explain just how to extend the development once you get into actual push territory (which isn't 800)...

If you do so, do it for the entire roll and REMEMBER TO MARK THE ROLL with the speed you used.

That's more than a bit slow for indoors.

Edit: I'll probably push the Tri-X to 800, 1250, or 1600. Really depends on the light...
I take it you're going for the "reality look" in your portraits? Have you considered shooting a variety? Also shoot some 100 film with flash and reflector fill for the opposite of what you're going to get in tone, grain and image quality when pushing small format film for portraits . Mix it up some
