The cut off point for changing from normal Tuesday strenuous walks to the Very Strenuous is relatively arbitrary and defines a step change in degree of exertion required, the limits are based on overall ascents of over 800m and a 'level ground equivalence' of 25.  Apart from the length, height and more challenging ground what adds to the difficulty is the travel time away from home.  But some Very Strenuous walks are easier than others, please discuss with me before committing yourself.  More information is available on the fitness note which is relevant reading for those aspiring to do the Very Strenuous walks.
