One approach that should work is to format the text of the heading or
sub-heading you want to repeat using a character style. Then, using a
STYLEREF field code will insert the most recent preceding text that
is formatted with that style, to which you can add your "continued"
manually. BTW, this is the same technique you would use to generate
running headers or footers that pick up some item of text from the
page, such as a function name in a software API reference.
