Building up endurance [History of Shin Splints]

Hi all.


I'm a bit new here, but I thought this would be the perfect place for me to improve my running.


I don't want to bore anyone so I will cut right to the chase...


When I was 16, I was running ~30 miles a week, ran a 2:04 800m and a ~5:00 mile. I was 6'2 and around 165 lbs.


The next year I just ballooned to 185 lbs. I got shin splints whenever I ran and just gave up on it.


Now at 19 I am 205 lbs. I havent gotten fat, it's more just me filling out. I used to be really tiny. I'll attatch a picture of how skinny I really was (photo insert ain't workin').


Long story short, I miss running. The track team here is not outstanding by any means and I really want to run the 800m for them. I ran about 9 miles over 5 runs last week and am set to do the same this week.


What sort of advice or training schedules would you all recommend? I really want to get up into the 20-30 mi/wk range.
