Because you're just starting, I would recommend doing no more than 1 brick workout per week. Bricks are very good race-simulation training, but if overdone, can lead to injury.
Does it get easier? Yes and no. You will find yourself getting used to the feeling, but as your body gets accustomed to the feeling, you will increase your speed and intensity.
Good luck on your first race!
