Me too, and also on Sunday... i was dragging a$$ on the home stretch to my house, about 65 miles into my 70 mile ride and I just pulled off into a little park, filled my bottles with fountain water and laid down in the shade for 15 min... did the same thing too, drenched my entire upper body in water and it felt fantastic. It had the desired positive effect, although a little girl walking by said "daddy, man fall down" to her grandpa, i about died laughing. it was 96 degrees out, which is hot, but I'm not used to this humidity right now.
I just watched my average speed drop off as the temperature climbed. ugh.
