Calf cramp - knot in muscle advice?

I developed a cramp in my calf muscle the other day while partway through my run. It happened last year on a fundraising walk I did - I know the culprit there was dehydration. but last year's was from the foot to butt cheek cramp and the therapists worked it out for me.

 

anyway...now there is a HUGE knot where the cramp was, and I cannot seem to make the pain go away.

 

any tips or hints or tricks? today's a rest day so I'm not going to push it.

 

I have been massaging it and doing heat/cold therapy. but OW.

 

Can't let this sideline me, I've been doing really good keeping going and I don't want to quit! I'm about to start W3 tomorrow....

 

THANKS!
