Calf muscles and little spasms?

Generally it happens after a long run, but sometimes I get it after short runs too. It doesn't seem to effect me particularly. Does look very freaky if it is bad, like worms crawling under the skin
I'm not convinced on the electrolyte bit, as on a long run I'll drink just under 2l of fluid, generally SIS electrolyte mix. I think it's something I am just prone to...
