TCav is right, framing tighter will really help. When panning, keep your eye on one part, be it a mirror, a persons head, door handle etc and keep that in exactly the same part of the frame (one of the focus indicators is the easiest for reference) that will help hugely.

If you were framed tighter then you would probably be happy with 1/120s or faster and still get a lot of blur.

Here are some old (nothing recent to hand) examples of what I mean.

Yep, tighter framing which means either getting closer or longer glass. The IS on L glass has two modes, mode two is specifically for this purpose and will allow slower shutter speeds.
