In brief: Problem

It is difficult, you really need rest.
I would try orthotics to support and balance your feet. Use ice on your shins after exercise and stretch

In brief: Difficult/prolonged

Shin splint are an overuse condition.
Rest is relative . You can back off by halves until the pain is decreased and couple it with treatment (PT,cushioning running shoes, +- orthotics) Cross training will also keep your edge/conditioning up while rest your lower extremity
