Hi Bruce

I certainly would not, no. Not while on antibiotics and with an infection. You can easily cause the infection to spread and then it has long term consequences. And besides, what are you going to tell by racing - you'll probably feel dreadful, underperform, take 2 weeks longer to recover, and maybe worsen your symptoms.

So on this one, better safe than sorry, and rather back off and rest until it's cleared up.

Good luck
