How have you stored the starter since Saturday? Have you added to the starter over this past week?

Well, I would have suggested after 24-48 hours to put it in the fridge and take it out before you start to brew to let it come to room temp.

Leaving the starter out for a week won't really hurt them, but it usually finishes fermenting within 24 hours for a starter size, so it doesn't help either.

You should be fine overall, yeast is very resilient. Maybe you could increase the starter size a bit to reactivate the yeast a bit, but not really required.

Before you pitch on brew day, you should decant some/most of the liquid off the top too. And make sure you swirl around the yeast after to bring it all into suspension before you pitch too!
