you didn't say if it was hot on the temp gauge? no matter, it sounds like you have a stuck t-stat. when the engine is cold, a mechanical valve keeps the water from coming out of the engine block until warmed up, then opens and lts the cooler water in. this cools down the engine and the colder temp of the water shuts the valve again. this happens constantly while the engine runs, and if your t-stat is stuck, the engine heats up the water in the block, but with nowhere to go, simply overheats the motor. a good repair book will locate the thermostat housing for you and should you the repair procedure. (i assume you have checked the water in the rad. low water will give you same symptoms). good luck.

Alternator could be dieing. Best way to check. charge up the battery. Should show 12+ volts. Start the car and check voltage. with everything off. Check again. Voltage should go up, 13 to 15 volts, is good. With running, turn everything on. If the voltage drops to the previous battery voltage or lower...Alternator is dieing. Another way to check the alternator is to start the car then take off the negative cable on the battery. If it dies, replace the alternator.
