No black cat crossed my path while I was riding this morning, although I did see a critter that I think was a coyote. It was pitch dark and foggy (again!), but I saw the animal's eyes glowing yellow. I wanted to do some "power" drills, when I shift into a hard gear and work to push the cadence to at least 70. I can get up a good speed that way, if only for a very short time; but in a fog it's too hard to see well enough. I ended up doing only one set of intervals, and the rest of the time I had to ride more slowly than I wished. So apparently I did get my bad luck for the day.
