Pool Maintenance Troubleshooting?

We haven’t been able to use our above ground pool for 2 days due to weather. It was covered during that time. I didn’t run the pump (call me stupid…). Anyway, I took the cover off today, planning to test the water and let the kids swim. The sides of the pool and the rafts had a slimy feel. The water is crystal clear, and there isn’t anything floating in the water (except the random bug or leaf that blows in). Is this an algae problem or what? What can I do for it? I have shocked it and have run the pump pretty much all day. Should I let it go all night and then check it again in the morning? I have also wiped down the sides and bottom of the pool with my sponge mop? What else can I do?

Keep pump running scrub down with soft brush,check Ph.It sounds like algae precursors.
