hey Cruz, you might want to check your shoes first. If they're more than 6 months old, you may need to replace them. I get shin splints all the time, but when I changed over to flat sole (think they call it minimalist) from New Balance, my shin splints disappeared.
I wouldn't say they're completely gone, but it takes longer to activate thus enabling me to run for sprints quite easily.
