Rising dough

I'm making focaccia which is supposed to rise 2-21/2 hrs. I just realized that I have an appt. and won't be back till 3 1/2 hrs. Is it a lost cause?

Deflate the dough and let it then cool rise in the refrigerator .

I do a cool rise this way most often to improve flavor and accommodate my baking schedule. Works very well.
