Enjoying a little time to herself for some post-Christmas vigor, Lea Michele went for a rigorous hike in the hills of California today (December 26).

Vowing to put her "feet up recharge, relax and breath in some fresh air" after promoting her single "Cannonball," the 27-year-old shared a framed photo on Twitter, captioning it, ""Christmas in California:) #freshair #hike #nature."

The pictures show the "Glee" superstar climbing over hills and rocks, sporting a cute gray sweatshirt, sexy black yoga pants and a pair of pink running treads.

Appearing on Ellen Degeneres' talk show earlier this month, Lea discussed the death of her boyfriend, Cory Monteith, saying, "I really feel like I'm still trying to figure out all of this. It's been only a few months, but…I think at a certain point you can choose to sort of fall from this or you can choose to rise."

She continued, saying, "And that's what I'm just trying to do my best for him, because I know that that's what he would have wanted," she said, adding she hopes to "make something positive for where I go in the rest of my life."
