Increase cadence to 180. Use a metronome. This will shorten your stride and help you land with your foot under your body.

The guys recommending more minimalist shoes are onto something.

Shin splints are super common today because humans have terribly weak feet, ankles, and lower legs.

Tibialis and calf exercises, focusing on a deep 3 second stretch and hard 3 second squeeze will work wonders for your shin splint problem, and will come with a ton of other benefits in the hills and gym alike.

Seems everyone is finally learning about Knees Over Toes Guy (Ben Patrick), and it's about time. He has popularized the S&C principles necessary to build resilient joints by combining strength with mobility. Look him up, his tib stuff is world class!

I was going to suggest the tibialis raises as well. Actually the entire zero program from Knees over toes guy is a good baseline.
Likely the BEST recommendation for just about every athlete to ever live tbh. Glad I'm seeing more guys familiar with Ben's stuff, he's the real deal.
