so quick info I have started TRT about 4 weeks ago, I take .25mg 3x a week as well as HCG at 35units 3x a week. I started TRT as I have been training for academy. I am 32 years old, weight of 210lb and height 5’11. I have already been training for about 6 months but kept getting injuries from running. I was also having a hard time dropping my weight. I got down to 190 before starting TRT but jumped right back up to 210. my testosterone was 170 and 5.8 the last blood work so obviously getting on trt to raise that and avoid injuries was the way to go.
I know running and high testosterone isn’t the best mix but I do already feel better, less injuries and quicker recovery times. my goal for the academy is 1.5miles at 15:58, which really shouldn’t be that hard to do. before I started TRT my PT time was 16:20. I ended up getting a strain in my calve and got the flu twice since. my run today was at 18:15 but my legs felt great after.
does anyone have advice for me to improve my times? I normally run every other day and do some kind of cardio on the off day like cycle or elliptical. I am also doing basic calisthenics like pushups, sit ups, and squats. I do meal prep which ends up being lean meats like chicken breast, rice and vegetable for the diet. no junk food but caffeine is a vice of mine. I have until august to get into the academy but one month to bring my time back down to 16, if I cannot get back down to low or mid 16 or I am out of a job.
so if anyone has any training advice for me that would be awesome. I need to improve my pace as my distance has improved.
