Impulse deck was powered up through the fight, and when the fall first started, then exploded after they were already being dragged down. So she was moving, maybe not full speed, but she was under some sort of power.
If you watch the scene, the Enterprise is always pointed toward the Moon while the imuplse engines are "on." That wouldn't push them toward the Earth (and moreover doesn't really push them at all).
Gee she's more parallel to the moon and banks into the turn that puts her on the course for Earth. And describe it however you want, the impulse engines were firing.
