It is possible (though usually unlikely) that a repair operation could go bad, and you could lose data.

I would recommend either shutting down your MySQL server and doing a system level backup / copy of the data directory, or if you do not want to bring down the server then do a backup of all tables / databases except the crashed watchdog table.

With either of those methods you will have a backup to at least get you back to where you were to start with if the repair table fails (though if you do the second option you will not have a backup of the watchdog table).
