In brief: Twitching muscle
May be muscle recovery after a long week of running.
Make sure that your electrolytes are in order including magnesium, zinc, and calcium. Also make sure that you are well hydrated.

In brief: Fasiculations
What you are describing sounds very much like a fasiculation.
They are common. There are multiple potential causes, but the vast majority of the time, there is no obvious pathology, ie they are normal.
