Symptoms; Feels like a twinge, or a clicking/popping feeling about half way between the bottom of my calf muscle and the bottom of my foot. There is no pain when it happens, not like a pulled muscle, it feels more like hitting a nerve. It seems more or less right in the middle of my Achilles tendon? It is weird because it doesn’t hurt, a little discomfort but not pain, I stop and stretch it out and then it seems fine for a while, and it doesn’t happen until I am deep into my runs. I just don’t know if I am doing something that I shouldn’t be doing by still running on it. It doesn’t feel sore or anything, it only happens when running

Any ideas, would help, not sure if I should go to the doctor just yet, have my first race in 4 weeks, and after all these months of training, I am just not ready for him or her to tell me to take a couple of weeks off. I was thinking of cutting my mileage in half and then slowly work my way back up.
