I use both quite frequently.

1) 70-200 and 100-400 with motorsports.  I use both for high speed panning.  IS is absolutely crucial here since I'm regularly shooting outside of the reciprocal rule.

2) Handheld macro with 100L IS.  And again, absolutely crucial here.

I can think of more scenarios, but those two are pretty much the bulk of my use of continuous mode and IS.

Generally speaking, if you're shooting something that requires a high rate of frames per second, image stabilization isn't very relevant. IS can't do anything about subject blur. You need a higher shutter speed to freeze subject motion.
