Stretching, heel cup: Shin splints are a stress injury to the tibia bone. A right heelcord can contribute to this so achilles stretching is a must. Viscoelastic (silicone) heelcups are helpful for shock absorption. Finally, evaluate your running style as errors in fair can overload the bone and contribute to the problem.
