Hello,
    So I have shin splints and I've been dealing with them for a while. Rest and ice is key as well as properly stretching them. With me being military it is hard to rest them as much as I would like do too PT and other activities. But definitely look up stretching exercises that will help. Also rolling them helps as well, use a lacrosse ball and roll both the in and outside of the shins for 30 seconds each side and then switch legs. Also if you run heel to toe, that can cause major problems, trying running more balls of the feet. It will help a lot. One major thing is talk to your coach, im sure he will understand and help you. Just be careful, train safe and good luck!
