yes the triad is only in sequential months. For january i am not sure but when you'll start the online application for Step1 it will tell you all of your possible triads as eligibility periods and then you have to choose any one of them.

first to be clear, you allotted these days in second read including qbanks right?
if yes then they are fine, and if you finish your second read by mid to late october with first aid then you can give an online Nbme form after it to track your progress if you are 15-20 points short of your target then you can easily give the exam by the end of december. as you would have 2 months from late october till late december in my view. If you are very far from your target then you may need more time.
