The best, apparently, do not rest much.

Minnesota Lynx point guard Lindsay Whalen was hard at it early Friday, the morning after the Lynx celebrated their championship with a parade at the University of Minnesota and rally at Williams Arena.

Whalen tweeted a red-faced and sweaty photo of herself wearing earbuds and a green headband. She wrote “The grind never stops” from her account @Lindsay_13.

A vintage black-and-white Nike poster of Michael Jordan palming a basketball, his arms spread like wings, hangs behind her.

The time of her tweet: 7:04 a.m. so she’d already been at it for a while. She got that workout in before a breakfast date. Whalen was at the 9:30 a.m. celebration at Gov. Mark Dayton’s residence on Summit Avenue.

The last time the Lynx won a championship in 2015, Whalen showed up at the governor’s residence with a brace on her leg and like her teammates she looked spent from a night of partying at Paisley Park with Prince.

Today, the 35-year-old, 14-year veteran already looks ready for Opening Day 2018.
