Firstly - for a pool-based tri-a-tri do't worry about swimming freestyle. Loads of people just breaststroke it. I did.

Secondly - again, for this level - you don't really need to worry much about brick session. Just do a few times when you run immediately after getting off the bike - doesn't have to be far, a mile or so is fine. It gets you used to the wierd wobbly-legged feeling, and reassures you that it does go away eventually... if you're already doing one brick session per week that's more than enough.

Swimming - to be honest, just get to the pool as and when you can as often as you can. It's different enough (in terms of the effort involved) that you can run or bike on the same day as a swim session if you are struggling to fit everything in.

Struggling to fit training in is pretty much a definition of triathlon.... :-)
