what is she 4/5 months old? She IS still a puppy basically, and even tho she's been good the past several weeks, there will be days like the one you just experienced..
I do agree with Jae , work on building a good bond/relationship with her as well. Dogs get 'bored' and well when they are bored they are going to act out, do what they want, especially younger dogs.
Put some "FUN" in your training as well, you have to be more interesting than whatever is going on around you..
As for the barking/going nutso at a dog walking by. I probably would have turned around, gone back to the house, let her chill out/calm down, and tried it again..
YOu might try exercising her before you take a walk to, she was probably amped up , ready to go and wasn't interested in training..
