Default New to TI Swimming

I purchased the PMF DVD and the 2004 Edition of "Total Immersion" Book at the beginning of the year. In the past three weeks, I have spent 26 hours drilling and have only progressed to Lesson 3.4. Although I feel my balance is good (mostly still not as good at rotating on my left track), I am very slow to complete even one lap of stroking. I am new to swimming freestyle and have had no previous experience with technique in swimming. Is it reasonable to expect I can progress to complete a triathlon with a 1.5K swim the end of May if I continue to spend 10-15 hours a week working on the lessons? The cut-off time for the swim is 55 minutes. I am concerned I may be setting unreasonable expectations. I am in pretty decent conditioning, completed a marathon last year and am comfortable with biking as well. Mahalo for your help and insights!
