Sounds OK to me. Bear in mind that May 1 is a holiday in Spain, May 2 is a holiday in the Madrid province, and May 15 is a holiday in Madrid city. Things will be closed on those days.

Try to make time after El Escorial to drive over to Segovia (about 55km or 1 hour) to see the Roman Aquaduct and then drive to Madrid via the road over the Guadarrama- views are fantastic!
