Son, when you participate in sporting events, it's not whether you win or lose; it's how drunk you get. -- Homer Simpson
Is the intensity of the ride and run important? or is it enough to do an easy ride then an easy run? I'm planning on doing a sprint tri this summer and haven't done any bricks yet. I'm just wondering if I should be simulating race conditions where I'd be biking hard then running hard or is just doing the transition regardless of intensity going to prepare me for the race?
I just started doing short brick workouts (bike/run) during my lunch hour at work.
They are KILLING ME. The bike part is not such a big deal (I'm only riding 5-6 mi), but jumping off the bike and right into the run is crazy hard. Does this part get easier, or is it something you just have to suffer through?
Any tips on how to properly make the transision would be welcome.

I actually found that it helped to make every bike workout a brick workout - even if you just get out there and do a half a mile or so.
