Good job. this is how it is supposed to be done.
The thing that you'll find different in the crit, from the bike leg of your sprint tri, is the dramatic accelerations.
Working on some short, intense intervals between now and then will help prepare you for that. You can do things like 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off. 5 times for a set, and then 5 minutes rest between sets.
These really help in dealing with the repeated surges of a crit.
You could fall off a cliff and die.
You could get lost and die.
You could hit a tree and die.
OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.
