The first question that comes to mind is: "From what, exactly, are you recovering?" The more intense the race (ride, century, double century, brevet) in terms of time and effort expended, the longer the recovery period.
You don't say where you're located, but with a heat index of 100, it would be in your best interest to teach your body to perform well (adapt) to that temperature/humidity range, as opposed to "take it easy because it's hot."
Regardless, you know yourself best, and (hopefully) how much recovery your body demands (okay, maybe "requests" is a better word!) after your (unspecified above) event.
