Overmixed Baguette Dough?

June 22, 2011 - 12:43pm -- storunner13

So...first post.

I've baked a number of breads before, but decided to do a little research and try making baguettes (just to be tough on myself).  Anyways, I was following the Bouabsa recipe (or at least I think I was following it).  But I'm pretty sure I overmixed it.  Being a newbie, I was expecting the stickyness to eventually go away leaving me with a smooth and elastic dough.  However, as I now understand, the stickyness should never go away.
