This topic is dedicated to all the crazy guys who attempted (and eventually succeeded) in climbing 25 times the same big. What is your feedback of this challenge ? When was it the hardest ? How to motivate oneself ?

Ce sujet est dédié à tous les membres fous qui vont tenter (et peut-être réussir) de grimper 25 fois le même big. Quelle est votre impression après ce challenge ? Ou avant ? Quand est-ce le plus difficile ? Comment se motiver ?

PostSubject: MUR DE HUY   Sun Apr 04, 2010 11:01 pm

Le 2 mai, sans doute avec Wouter, je tenterai 25 fois le mur de Huy.
Pour le tournage du petit reportage sur le BIG à la RTBF, ils me l'ont déjà fait grimper 4 fois de suite. Après le 2e mur, je me suis dit : "je n'y arriverai jamais le 2 mai".
Au 4e, j'étais mieux.... Pourquoi ? Je n'en sais absolument rien !
En tout cas, j'ai vraiment envie d'essayer.
Je crois que je vais le tenter en 6 séries : 1 de 5, puis 5 de 4.
Je pense commencer vers 6h30 le matin et en faire entre 3 et 4 par heure...
Ca fera 3200m de dénivellation, 32,5 km de montée (moyenne 10%) et 95km (25 tours de 3,8km) au total.
On verra.

PostSubject: Italiaanse Weg   Tue Apr 06, 2010 3:26 pm

Have done BIG 102 Italian Road last Friday. A nice climb through the forest over cobblestones. The weather was great, about 14 C, with sun and clouds. I did this challenge in 3 series (2x10, 1x5), with a short break in between each to eat something and take a sanitary stop Very Happy
After 6-7 runs in a serie, you're really looking forward to that coming break, even though short. And the last runs are just dead-boring, since you know every stone, tree, branch, or whatever is lying on the road, just the hikers in the forrest changed every run Shocked
Well, after 3 hours I completed the job, luckily, and raced home for a nice white beer in the afternoon sun!
I think for other BIG's not to be completed within one day, this boringness is smaller, but on the other hand 25 stays 25 times!!
To summarize, if you're somewhat well-trained (or somewhat more), then it's reasonably well do-able, the mental issue of boredome is the major problem!

Ich habe schon eine Herausforderung fast hinter mir. Ich will bis zu meinem 50. Geburtstag 50-mal von 800 auf 1700m (900 Hm) auf die Wiechenthalerhütte http://www.alpenverein.at/saalfelden/Huetten/0100_wiechentaler.php
wandern. (von November 2009 bis april 2010).
Hoffentlich wird das IRONBIG Unternehmen weniger schwer.

I have a challenge almost beyond me. I want to be my 50th Birthday 50 times from 800 to 1700m (difference 900m) walk to the Wiechenthalerhütte. http://www.alpenverein.at/saalfelden/Huetten/0100_wiechentaler.php
(From November 2009 to April 2010).
Hopefully the IRONBIG is less heavy.

Gratulálok Feri !! - nem is tudom, olvastam-e a magyaron !

-----------
OTHER: My opinion is that those IRONBIG callenges are too light ones, that (by the version 25 times in a day) has less than ca. 2500m in a day (less than 100meteres heightdifference / climb), that's why I try to do a harder one on Pannonhalma (http://challenge-big.eu/hun/big/853 ) next year.

On Dobogókő (550-600m heightdiff ) I would like to do that with ca. 4-6 cycling days: on those days to climb it minimum 3-6 times in that day.

Cow and Calf was too easy! The painful bit was losing my bike - stolen.
Today I started Ironbig of Mam Tor, my nearest BIG to home so thought really I should do this!
Today I climbed all three sides twice. It's impossible to cycle it 25 times in one day but here is my start.
I completed six climbs from all three sides twice. I will attempt it three more times to make 25 climbs in one month. Please add me for Ironbig 2 challenge.
I need the practice for my next tour!
regards
Kevin
