What you need is NDSolve's Option "StoppingTest"...
StoppingTest:>(Sqrt[x[t1]^2 + y[t1]^2] > 2) is a sample use of it.
I strongly recommend using this version:
StoppingTest:>(stopT=t; Sqrt[x[t1]^2 + y[t1]^2] > 2)
which at the end of the computation holds in stopT the time that you
interupted the computation (and is probably not tmax)
