Suggest I stop running (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

posit

'suggest' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)

'i stop running' is the wordplay.
'running' indicates anagramming the letters.
'i'+'stop'='istop'
'istop' anagrammed gives 'POSIT'.

(Other definitions for posit that I've seen before include "Dispose" , "Put forward (argument)" , "advance" , "Put forward (an idea)" , "Put forward as basis for discussion" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
