Your statement isn't very clear, but what I think you are saying is that my guess isn't really a guess because I could be wrong? I think you are referring to an "educated guess"?
Here is the dictionary definition of the word:

to arrive at or commit oneself to an opinion about (something) without having sufficient evidence to support the opinion fully
So yes, my statement was a guess. I do not have sufficient evidence to support my opinion that AAS does not slow down catabolism. But, it is possible to make a guess and be wrong.
