    Honestly the best answer to shin splints is rest. Then reevaluate your mechanics as well as your foot gear. Then work back in at an appropriate progression. A persons running technique, footwear, and amount they progress are the main reasons for shin splints.

    ^^^ This.

    And learn to strike on your midfoot under your center of gravity vs. heel striking or toe-ing down infront of you.
