Most common cause for this is a muscular spasm secondary to physical exertion, together with dehydration.

But another possibility could be of a pinched nerve in the spine (which needs MRI for diagnosis).

But since this happened first time, and that too transiently, I would bet on some thing benign like a muscular spasm.

Just watchfully observe/monitor yourself for any recurrence of this symptom, and if recurs frequently would require evaluation.

Some times this can also happen due to low calcium or magnesium in the body.

Keep yourself adequately hydrated.

Gentle Stretching of muscles will be helpful.
