During a recent 5k race my right calf suddenly felt sore/tight on the inside at the top of the soleus. I was able to finish the 1k to the end but afterwards it was sore to touch and painful when I got up on my toes or going down stairs for the next few days.

The soreness then subsided only a matter of days later so I tried a slow run and managed 7miles without feeling the slightest twinge once.

Then two days later during the gentlest of warm-ups it went instantaneously in the same fashion as during the race and now is sore to touch again as before.

If it was injured/strained how would I have run 7miles in between the two occurrences? What could be going on, I'm bewildered!
