How do you power through post-excitement depression?

I hope this isn't chat-filter, but more "I'm looking for suggestions for a quick fix." Last week was my birthday, a visit with my little sister, who lives in Maryland, and then a long-anticipated half marathon trip with my DH to Washington D.C. (which ended in a personal record by more than 4 minutes!). My husband has been waiting to hear about a promotion at his job for more than two months, and just heard yesterday that it's still going to be a long wait before they make a decision.
Today and the near future: crickets. I find myself in a bit of, if not depression, general malaise that's been bothering me. Combined with DH's job stress and the lack of a goal race for another 8 weeks, how do I find some inspiration/motivation to knock me out of the day to day drone of waiting/training?
