comment What is a safe distance for a barefoot running on asphalt?
I'm not sure that there's any answer to be given; depends too much on specifics about you and your conditioning for this type of running. I think you should just listen to your body: if/when it hurts, stop.

comment Why am I falling back when I am squatting?
Don't get too caught up with the knees-behind-toes "rule". Google for images of heavy squats; you're just not going to find anyone lifting significant weight whose knees don't come at least a little forward. Body mechanics don't back that "rule" up.

comment Is it really important to restrict the workout to 45 minutes?
Yes indeed "things" help in that respect! :-) But one can still generally do much more than popular opinion might suggest au natural.

comment Knee pain when squatting
I don't want to take away from the main question, but just wanted to mention that knee past toes is not necessarily poor form (common myth among non-lifting PT types) - in fact, it's probably necessary for good form! Otherwise, hard to keep balance & the right structure with load bearing over the center of your foot. Just try to squat below parallel with your toes (and therefore knees) against a wall!
