Congrats on your first century.
Do you have access to a pool?
I find stretching and walking around in the water help me loosen up, alternating with a little time in the jacuzzi.
Walk forwards, backwards, sideways; twist around. Lazy kicking with a kickboard. Double-arm backstroke to loosen tight upper back and neck. Stretch glutes, hamstrings, quads, triceps, etc while standing on the bottom one hand on the pool deck.
Don't spend too much time in hot water and take a water bottle with you to avoid further dehydration.
