Go for it! I drove a car much worse than that for a good part of a year, including several 180 mile trips from SLO to San Jose.
One thing I would be careful for is seeing oil in the coolant, or coolant in your oil, if the low compression is b/c of the head gasket. But the mechanic should have been able to tell you if it was because of rings or valves that you have low compression or if it was because of a head gasket when he did the cylinder leak down test.
If you do see contamination, driving very far on tainted oil would be a poor choice.
