You risk oxidizing your beer. Could be bad. Depends on how much air you let into it. Im guessing you'll be fine. But dont really know how much O2 your talking about.

Im gonna tell you what everyone else would tell you. Let er' ride. There's nothing you can do now. Beer is not as temperamental as one would think. I cant tell you for sure you are fine but what i can say is you will know soon enough. I guessing you will be ok but cant bring myself to say for sure. I hope all works out for ya truly. Best wishes and if you ever need help im here for ya -Cheers

Even if you do get oxidation, the cardboard/stale symptoms of oxidation don't appear in the beer until a good 3-4 weeks after the actual oxidation event, so just drink up and your beer will be fine!
