Capturing Lugia in Alpha Sapphire?

Okay, so, I know that Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby are fairly new, but I'm majorly freaking out, so I need to ask this question anyway.
I've already found Lugia in Alpha Sapphire. The first time I battled it, it ran out of moves and killed itself using Struggle. I had saved before going into the battle, so I simply turned my 3DS off and back on so that I could have another go at capturing the legendary - and here's where the problem comes in.
I went into battle a second time, but wasn't paying much attention to where I was tapping on the screen because I was trying to adjust ice packs on my face (( I just had oral surgery )). I accidentally clicked "Run" and safely escaped the fight. At first I thought, "Well, I'll just turn around and go back through the ring.", so I rearranged my team, saved the game, then turned around to go back in - but it wouldn't give me the option to. It simply comes up with a message that says "A mysterious ring is floating in the water..." and then the message disappears.
Have I screwed up my chance to capture Lugia? Is there anyway that I could still get Lugia without having to restart my game? (( Which I really don't want to do because I'm about to go face the Elite Four. )) Do I need to wait I specific amount of time before I can come back and try again? Please help. I need some good news, right now...

The Lugia will respawn after you beat the E4 and champion again. This also applies for making the Legendary Pokemon faint, as it makes the Legendary Pokeon disappear.
