I would go ahead and dose both macros and micros today. I do that all the time.

I just pick up where I left off. I don't dose both, but dose whichever one I forgot. Then dose the other the next day. I let the cycle get reset on my "no dose" and water change day.

I just dosed my micros when the lights came on an dosed my macro 8 hours later. When is the best time to dose I usually do it a couple hour before the lights go out because that's when I get home from work

Since plants photosynthesize while the lights are on, that's when they need the nutrients. Therefore, I try to add the ferts just before the lights go on so they'll be in the tank right as the plants need them.

I vaguely remember reading somewhere that you shouldn't dose both on the same day. I forget the reason why, but I've never done this. I continue on with the schedule just like the others have stated and I try and do it an hour or two before my lights click on.
