I used to develop shin splints all the time until a took a cardio course that forced me to do 40-60 min of cardio 3 times a week. In order to fix this I first got new shoes with good insoles and started focusing on stretching my calves and trying to strengthen my anterior tib (muscles on front of shin). The way I built up to distance running was using a stationary cycling bike to build my endurance, progressed to elliptical to get used to the motions of running down with the endurance I gained, then onto the track. When I first started running didn't go very far distance wise, but I was able to jog for the entire workout without pain or being too exhausted.
