"A leisure activity that's beyond me," I put in (7)


I believe the answer is:


'a leisure activity' is the definition.
(I know that pastime is a type of leisure activity)

'beyond me i put in' is the wordplay.
'beyond' becomes 'past' (to go beyond something is to go past it).
'put in' means one lot of letters goes inside another.
'pastme' enclosing 'i' is 'PASTIME'.

'that's' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for pastime that I've seen before include "Hobby - recreation" , "relaxation" , "Leisure activity" , "Hobby; regular activity" , "doing the crossword, say" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
