Pop sounds Bad.: Feeling a pop in a calf, especially under the circumstances you have given, is certainly concerning. I would recommend that you see a specialist for a evaluation of your calf. Pops can be an indication of a slight tear that could lead to something more serious. Second guessing this potential problem is just not worth it.
