Leap 42.1 XFS corrupted file problem

I booted my asus M5A78L-M/USB3 machine this morning and got the following on the screen:

Welcome to emergency mode! After logging in, type "journalct1 -xb" to vie
system logs, "systemct1 reboot" to reboot, "systemct1 default" to try again
to boot into default mode
Give root password for maintenance
(or press contol-D to continue):
XFS (sda3): Metadata corruption detected at_write_verify+0xd5/0xe0 [xfs], block 0x113e04a8
XFS (sda3): Unmount and run xfs_repair
XFS (sda3): First 64 bytes of corrupted metadata

XFS (sda3): Corruption of in-memory data detected. Shutting down filesystem
XFS (sda3): Please unmount the filesystem and rectify the problem(s)

Since I'm relatively inexperienced with Leap 42.1 and XFS I would like some help getting out of the mess. The M5A78L-M/USB3 has 16 gig installed and and an FX8320 six core in service.

Do you have a working operating system?

Then download a distro, which has a live mode.

Like systemrescue cd.

And run xfs_repair

without having mounted the defective partition.

Thank you for your suggestion. I do have an operating system. I have booted using knoppix 7.6.1 and in terminal mode ran xfs_repair -d. The response was that the log text was corrupted. I then ran xfs_repair -L after assuring myself that the target partition was not mounted to delete the log. I ran xfs_repair -d again. The result was that the partition is now operating.
