i know this is old, but I came to the same conclusions, and here's how I finished for a TG verified 1:42:59 no warping 100% run.

Attack Level 4 - Magic Level 1 - Health Level 1
Magic Containers 5 - Heart Containers 4 - Keys 0

I don't remember which names go with which towns, so...

continuing toward Hammer caves, avoiding shadows along the way:

Collect "Heart" in Parapa Plains
Collect "Trophy" in Hyrule West Desert
Collect "jump" in "Mountain Town".
Using top safe route, Get "letter" from Bagu
Swing around Long way to "River town" collecting "points bag" 100
Go to river town collect "mirroir" and life.  Refill if needed.
go through Death mountian caves, killing everything as you come on it.  
Follow the normal route, but make sure to go after the second "Red Axe Monster"
You will riase attack to level 5
Collect "Hammer"
Collect "Magic Jar"
come back up the route to "Seaside town"
Collect "down thrust"
go to caves north of town, collect "heart" and "points bag" 200
Go to "Grass town" and collect "shield"
Go to palace 2
Raise attack to 6(THIS IS THE HARDEST PART OF THIS RUN, it has to go almost perfectly)
IF it does and there's 200 or more points left, raise life to 2. skip 3
Set crystal raise attack to 7
collect Water of Life and Fairy spell
Go to palace 3, raise life and magic 2 levels each, but make sure you have enough points left to skip and set crystal and raise attack to 8.
Collect "water" and Collect "fire" spell.
Go to maze island Collect "child"
using the shadow skip glitch, go to "Desert town" and collect s"reflect" and "Up thrust"
Return to Maze island and collect "magic Jar" clear palace 4, skipping all levels, and collect "boots" and  9000 from crystal.  raise "life" as far as you can, use the left overs on "Magic"
Repeat with palace 5 and Collect "flute"
Use shadow skip and fairy to navigate to SW Hyrule.
Go to "Kausto Hidden"
Collect last "Majic Jar" and "spell" and "Magic key".
"collect magic jar and Key
Go to Three eye Desert and collec "Heart"
Cap off magic in palace 6, either by using life or attack maxed out or directly.
go to "Kausto ruined", collect Thunder
USe shadow skip to reach "Great palace".
Defeat great palace.

No extra lives are REQUIRED.  However taking the" extra lives" in the graveyard and by the enterence to maze island are the quickest.

Didn't want to bother making a new topic, but I just remembered this trick I found a few years back. If you get hit by one of those black things just as you enter the first bend after the River Devil, you can skip one or two of the areas with all of the lizalfos. Hard to do; don't know about saving time, but I thought I might as well document it here.

I just turned 29..so that trick just turned 20?  ;D

but shadow skipping is truly a BIG DEAL, saves tons of time.  downside is if you need those experience points for any reason...
