Advice on proposed 2 week southern Spain and Marid itinerary

I'm a student studying abroad in Europe this spring, and I'm going to spend 2 weeks in Madrid and southern Spain this February. I've already got another trip planned for Barcelona and the Basque region for April, so I'll exclude those from this trip. My proposed idea is:

Sat: Arrive Madrid (sleep Madrid)

Sun: Day in Madrid (sleep Madrid)

Mon: Day in Toledo (sleep Toledo)

Tues: Travel to Granada via Madrid (sleep Granada)

Wed: Day in Granada (sleep Granada)

Thur: Day in Nerja (sleep Nerja)

Fri: Day in Gibraltar (sleep Gibraltar)

Sat: Day in Ronda (sleep Ronda)

Sun: Travel to Sevilla - could spend some time in Ronda if have lost time (sleep Sevilla)

Mon: Day in Sevilla (sleep Sevilla)

Tues: Day in Cordoba (sleep Cordoba)

Wed: Travel to and more time in Madrid (sleep Madrid)

Thur: Day in Segovia (sleep Segovia)

Fri: Day in Avila / El Escorial / Valley of the Fallen (sleep Madrid)

Sat: Fly out of Madrid in afternoon (morning in Madrid)

I'll be doing it all by train/bus. Also, I'll be traveling alone. I'd appreciate any feedback as to whether these destinations sound good and whether any of it sounds too crazy.

I would do Toledo as a day trip from Madrid. Read about this day trip in the top questions of the Madrid forum.

For train travel, read Buying Renfe Tickets Online.

Read Buying Alhambra Tickets Online and BOOK EARLY.

I would skip Gibraltar and add the day to Seville. The governments of Gibraltar and Spain are having a quarrel and it may take hours to cross the border. Besides, Gibraltar is mostly a shopping experience and is not worth it.
