Default Missed mash temp

I just doughed in on a Terrapin Rye Pale Ale clone. My target temp was 154. I came in at 152.8. I just couldn't get any higher than that without making the mash too thin. The mash is scheduled for 90 min. Should I cut that down to prevent the beer from drying out too much, or do you think I should be OK?

I'm using 1272 firmly yeast, 1L starter

1.2 degrees isn't exactly "missing it". If I'm within a degree or 2 I call it good.
