Hello, I’m 46 yo, I’ve been on TRT for about 12 weeks now and feel good. I began treatment because I had low libido, no morning wood, no interest in sex, low energy, increase in ab fat, low motivation … lots of typical signs. My T was at about 400 ng/dl, free T around 7, SHBG of 55 nmol/L. Currently 985 ng/dl, FT 14.
I believe my 20 years of distance running contributed to my symptoms. I love running, but haven’t done much since beginning treatment (currently lifting weights mostly with less running).
My question is, I’ve been a little hesitant to begin serious endurance training again because I don’t want the potential negative impact on T. Is this a rational fear? OR with my being on TRT, do I not need to worry about distance running lowering my T since I’m getting regular injections, and that would keep my T at more optimal levels?
In general, do I no longer need to worry about the impact lots of endurance training would have on my T now that I am on TRT? I would really love to hit it hard again and start training for Ironman Tris, Ultra races, marathons, etc.
