i dont know much about your scenario or your goals- but from your post and sig i gather:
*you are just getting into racing
*you live somewhere that is cold and that will restrict outdoor bike time for quite a few months
*road TT's are a big focus
*You are very interested in checking out track racing
I would say that doing full gas 10" sprints in october is not really the right way to go...
there are tons of programs and tons of programs that would get you to your goals in totally different ways. at this point, at the early stages of your racing career you need to build a foundation- and as before there are a million different ways to do that.
If you don't have access to training partners or coaches who have a knowledge of building a season training wise, the first place i would start is "The Cyclist Training Bible"
while The Bible is not at all focused on track cycling it does cover a huge amount of training fundamentals and will be a great tool for getting you to your TT goals. I think tweaking that program once you have built your foundation, and adding in some more track focused workouts is pretty easy, and i have had coaches who basically followed that model. You may need to come back here for specific ideas about those workouts- but with months of conditioning and bike time under your belt- it will all make more sense then..
