In brief: Resistance condition

Resistance conditioning should help.
Try putting a bean bag on the top of your foot and then bending your ankle to lift your toes up. As you lift your toes tip them so the sole of your foot faces outward. That motion should strengthen the muscle that is usually responsible for shin splints. Work at just below the level of any discomfort and slowly build up. Later, tip toe balancing to strengthen.
