  1. Hello there,
    when I'm running on asphalt (for example to catch the bus) barefoot, my ankles often hurt (while running, not afterwards). Not really much, but enough to notice.
    Does anyone of you have an idea where that comes from and what I could do against it (e.g. how to change my "running technique")?

    You use the muscles in your feet and legs differently when barefoot to when you wear shoes. As a result you'll need to build up strength in those muscles. It'll happen soon enough though, just stick it out until you're more comfortable.

    No offense, you might just be fat, how much do you weigh?
    Does this absolutely only occur on asphalt?

    its probably what sax said. Shoes provide support for your legs and you get used to running/walking with shoes on and they develop a certain amount of muscles so you can. When you take off your shoes, you lose the support that the shoes provide and you need to build up those muscles.
